The curriculum at Clinton State School is engaging and challenging, and delivered in a supportive and caring environment. This allows each student to develop to the utmost of his/her capabilities.  Our priority is for each student to possess the skills in literacy and numeracy and the required knowledge and understandings to become a productive member of society, with the abilities to adapt to change, think and reason, communicate effectively, and continue to be a life-long learner in our ever-changing world.

The school community places particular importance on the productive partnership that is developed between home and school and the important, positive impact this has on each child's learning.

At Clinton we have a strong belief in ‘Reward for Effort’ and encourage all students to become active participants in their learning. Goal setting is one approach used to foster students in making connections between their own personal choices for learning and the end results.

More detailed information about the curriculum at Clinton can be obtained by contacting your child’s classroom teacher through the school office.
