Australian Science and Mathematics School

The Australian Science and Mathematics School (ASMS) is a specialist senior high school for Years 10-12 and is one of only two in Australia. It is located on the campus of Flinders University at the base of the Adelaide hills, close to public transport, major shopping and cinema complexes and popular beaches. The goal of the school is to prepare students for university, particularly in the fields of mathematics and science. ASMS is an innovative purpose built school designed for highly collaborative and interactive learning, bringing leading edge developments in the ‘new sciences’ into the school experience. Students may also have the opportunity, as part of Flinders University's Science and Technology Enterprise Partnership, to be involved in research projects in the business, industry and university sectors. Students graduating from ASMS will be creative, critical, informed and motivated citizens responding to personal, professional and social issues.
