Welcome to the Northern School for Autism

The Northern School of Autism strives to be a centre of excellence. Students are supported towards developing their personal and educational potential, so as to be valued contributors to family and community life.

Principal’s Welcome

I am very proud to be the principal of Northern School for Autism. Across the two campuses of NSA a dedicated team of 140 staff members provide autism specific educational programs, for 270 students from 5 to18 years of age. Each campus community is supported by a leadership team who oversees the implementation of the curriculum and daily operations of each campus.

The Reservoir Campus provides state of the art facilities for the Early and Middle Years’ students. The Later Years’ students attend the refurbished Lalor Campus, which is located close to transport, community services and shopping precincts. In 2015 the school opened a satellite program at Norris Bank Primary School.

Every student attending Northern School for Autism is provided with an individual learning plan to ensure they are able to grow and learn to their full potential. In 2016 we celebrated our 10th birthday. we pride ourselves on being a centre of excellence in the provision of programs for students with autism. I hope you enjoy learning all about our wonderful school.
