Coober Pedy Area School is a complex and unique school in the outback of South Australia. It includes a preschool and has students from Foundation (Reception) to Year 13. Our students represent 49 different cultures, with more than one-half of our enrolment being made up of Aboriginal students.
Our vision is to create an outback academy, providing a quality and unique learning experience for our students, preparing them for academic attainment, vocational pathways, engagement as a citizen, emotional and physical health. We have a major focus on literacy and a school wide motto "Everybody Reads".
TAFE courses, the South Australian Aboriginal Sports Training Academy supports and a committed team of teachers, school support officers and an Aboriginal education team support our students to reach their academic, community, social and sporting aspirations.
