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

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 School 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. 

Formed in 1989, Treetops School 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.

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

truly outstanding.

Treetops School 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.
