Aspect Hunter High School

Currently there is no autism-specific high school in the Hunter region. This means many students are missing out on the vital support they need to reach their full potential and prepare for a positive life post-school – whether moving onto further education, employment or community participation.

Our new high school is being built next to our existing primary school site at Thornton. We plan to open in Term 1 2019 with two classrooms and 12 students and will add four more classrooms during 2019/20.

Our vision is to develop a high school program that delivers the education curriculum by using students’ strengths and interests to engage in learning and develop skills and connections for a positive transition to adulthood. We will offer practical opportunities through the establishment of facilities including: a horticultural centre with a vegetable garden, a café, industrial kitchen and a technology centre.

The unemployment rate for adults on the spectrum is over 50% – dramatically higher than the national average, and higher than for people with other disabilities. Our new high school will take us one step closer to improving this statistic and creating a world where no-one on the autism spectrum is left behind.
