Welcome to Dara School – providing R-12 Gifted Education in Australia

Dara School is a progressive educational community. We nurture learning and personal growth in intellectually gifted students. Dara is a secular, independent and co-educational school, specialising in Gifted Education.

Dara School has a progressive educational philosophy. The environment is intentionally designed around the specific learning characteristics of gifted students. Our design is based on a pedagogy that recognises and nurtures each student’s individuality and uniqueness. We provide a student-centred, integrated, and personalised approach to teaching and learning, complemented by strategically organised and flexible learning spaces.

Dara School currently caters for Reception to Year 8 students. We will grow incrementally to cater for students from Reception to Year 12 by 2026.

2023 – Year 9
2024 – Year 10
2025 – Year 11
2026 – Year 12

You can learn more about our approach on the Why Dara page, and find information about our enrolment process on the Application pages. We also provide links to other organisations under the Resources tab, including a list of Gifted and Talented associations around Australia, such as the Gifted and Talented Children’s Association of South Australia.
