to Treetops

Treetops is a Montessori and International Baccalaureate School situated in Darlington, in the hills east of Perth.

Formed in 1989, Treetops is a close-knit community of parents, staff and students, which strives to assist children to develop to their full potential, to be happy and peaceful, to grow in knowledge and confidence and to have respect for themselves and others.

Treetops’ nurturing environment provides children with a broad, harmonious and thorough education from Playgroup through to Year 12. The Montessori method has longevity world-wide and integrates effectively with the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme offered at Treetops.

Treetops is the only accredited IBDP Year 11 and 12 provider in the Eastern Perth Hills, and one of only a few schools in Western Australia to achieve this standard. 

With Treetops’ better than average student/teacher ratio, our multi trained, extensively trained teaching staff and our incredible community, our multi faceted approach to education from Playgroup through to Year 12 is something really outstanding.

Treetops is a Montessori and International Baccalaureate School with an exceptional learning environment and excellent teachers and staff.

I extend an invitation to explore our website and then to book a tour to come and visit the school.

I am available for individual tours for parents to view Treetops, where we can discuss what it is you really hope for in an education. I am sure you will be, as prospective parents, enthused by the sense of purpose and contentment that is apparent at our school.

Students should be presented with a challenging and broad academic environment that encourages intellectual inquiry and critical thinking.

Education is the shared responsibility of students, family and school.

Nurturing curiosity and creativity is the key to stimulating exploration and discovery throughout life.

Students learn best when they are actively engaged in authentic learning experiences.

Treetops provides outstanding education in Numeracy, Literacy, Science, Music and the Arts, with a particular focus on the development of the whole child.

Our schools’ environment provides children with a broad, harmonious and thorough education from Playgroup to High School. We are a Montessori school from Early Years through Primary School, transitioning through High School to an International Baccalaureate High School education.

Education at each level, in accordance with Montessori principles, is predicated on the basic human urge to explore. An important feature of our classrooms is their social composition. The mixed age setting facilitates the personal, social and intellectual development of the children.  Read more
