High Quality Education
The Frankston region is superbly served by education facilities for families, tertiary students, businesses and those seeking further education for career development and lifelong learning.
For families there are 44 public and private schools and a range of high quality options for pre-school learning. The much sought-after Frankston High School is one of the state’s high demand zoned schools. Located nearby are three top independent schools, The Woodleigh School, Toorak College and The Peninsula School.
Monash University's Peninsula Campus is unique in that it is a large prestige group of eight Universities and yet small enough to offer its students an intimate and personal learning experience. The campus has around 4000 students undertaking study in the areas of Business, Education and Health.
$20 million is being invested over the next 5 years for a new school of Primary and Allied Healthcare, strengthening business and education facilities and upgrading and enhancing the campus.
A state of the art student accommodation which is under construction will provide 150 rooms in a modern, high quality and sustainable building, due to be completed in 2019.
This significant investment will establish Monash Peninsula campus as Australia's leading centre of allied health and primary care education and research, building on existing strengths in emergency medicine, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and nursing.
