Differentiation occurs at Victoria Point State High School at many levels. Our whole school policy of "Differentiation" means that individual learning needs of each student is met on many levels throughout the school. All teachers throughout our school identify the learning needs of the students in their classes and implement learning activities and teaching strategies to give each student the best opportunity to engage with curriculum at Victoria Point State High School.
In the junior secondary school students with a history of academic success are offered a place in the honours program to extend and expand their academic capabilities. These students are given opportunities to engage in web conferencing with other students of like ability throughout Queensland and with guest University of Queensland Professors and acclaimed experts in fields ranging from philosophy to science and design, to creative writing. These students will also take part in regional and state wide days of excellence and competitions such as "OPTI-minds" and other "Gifted and Talented" workshops.
Participation in all this program of differentiation is voluntary and removal from the program can be sought by parental request. Placement in all of the programs is based on students’ current learning needs and is not permanent. Each student’s allocation to these programs is reviewed regularly. The number of students that can be placed is these programs are based on funding available.
