Prahran High School welcomed Year 7 students to their impressive new campus last week.
One of the first vertical schools to be delivered by the Victorian Government, Prahran High School is a co-educational secondary school which will accommodate 650 students.
Encompassing five levels of learning space for design, art, technology and science, the unique design responds to a comparatively tight site in an urban area.
The school features an open atrium at the centre of the building, teaching areas, a main performance space and outdoor terraces on every level.
The ground floor includes a learning resource centre and performing arts facilities, while levels one, two and three house the science, visual arts and food technology spaces, and a gym. Level four provides a rooftop garden for students to relax in and play.
“The new Prahran High School is a brilliant example of what a contemporary, urban school looks like.” Minister for Education James Merlino
