The Rainforest School is located at Dundee Park, a beautiful location in the hinterlands of Mission Beach. Our school house is a homely Queenslander with a wrap-around veranda and is surrounded by lush rainforest. We are a school that is small by design.
We are inspired by Montessori, Steiner, Forest Learning and Nature Play philosophies, and governed by Cassowary Coast Community Campus INC.
Our school follows the Australian National Curriculum. We deliver an educational program which uses a balanced range of explicit, hands-on and real-life learning.
