Sherbrooke Community School, situated in the leafy Dandenong Ranges, is a small Prep-12 government school that has been operating since 1985. With a capped student population of 160, students are grouped into four teaching teams; Prep – year 6, years 7-9, and VCE/VCAL years 10-12. Sherbrooke Community School is proud of the work it undertakes to provide a viable alternate educational setting. Sherbrooke students enjoy smaller class sizes enabling them to learn in an environment of inclusiveness and support.
We strive to develop a school community of empathic, passionate and active global citizens that strive for personal best. We endeavour to treat each student as a unique individual in a community setting.
Sherbrooke Community School believes in pathways for all. We offer academic and vocational pathways seeking to find the right match for each student to reach their destination, whether that choice be University, TAFE or training, or employment.

Sherbrooke has always had a strong focus on Sustainability across the curriculum. We are part of 'Resource Smart’, a Government programme run through CERES.
Please visit our Sustainability page for more information.
A group of students, teachers and parents are helping to drive our school to being a 5-star sustainable school. Please see DD for more information on how you too can get involved in the Sustainability Committee.
You can also visit the Sherbrooke Community School blog on the CERES Sustainability Hub website here. It has information on just some of the environmental and sustainability programs we run.
We welcome the involvement of the school community in the operation of the school. School Council is responsible for aspects such as fundraising, setting the school's budget and developing policies.
School Council meets on the final Wednesday of the month at 6.30pm in the staff room. Each member is also part of a sub-committee which is responsible for different aspects of Council's work.
If you would like to become involved with School Council, but would like more information, please contact Rose (Barnaby and Florence's Mum) on 0407 819 961.
The Grounds sub-committee meets on the second Wednesday of every month, in the VCAL room, at 2.10pm. It is made up of committed parents, VCAL students and teachers. We have so much planned this year - including organising working bees, becoming a '5 star' sustainable school, as well as a plan for new Community Gardens at the school, and much much more! Come along and get involved in your school!
