Our College


“Wonderful school with polite and friendly students and staff. Small, close-knit family/community atmosphere coupled with modern learning environments was the perfect choice for our son's secondary education.”

“My son attends TMC and couldn't be happier. Not only is the school an excellent academic learning environment, but the bonus's are that it is situated amongst beautiful flora and fauna; on rich earth with magnificent views, scenery, energy and environmental stimulation. The college provides a safe, well established learning environment which is both inquisitive and educational. The students are caring, cultural, down to earth and informed. I find the students are encouraged to consider the bigger picture aspects of life, the earth, planet and environment, curriculum, the community, people and humanity. There are many specialist activities, including music, sport and subjects to expand their repertoire. The Tamborine community offers warm, friendly people whose connections make an interesting and expansive point of contact with many rich and heartfelt conversations. There really is everything you could need within the TMC community and the support and network are exceptional and personal. The staff at TMC are both welcoming and professional with impeccable service, working in a rural environment, which truly makes a huge difference in the lives of the children who attend the college, body, mind and soul.”

“The communication from the school is fantastic. Whenever I have had to go to Reception it is always clean and tidy and from what i see from the carpark walking into Reception all that area is meticulously maintained. In regards to schooling, issues are addressed straight away and i have never had you try to 'brush things under the carpet' so to speak, you are always upfront.”

“I wanted a small and caring environment for my children and deliberately chose TMC for this reason. My child is in year 4 and has thrived at TMC. He comes home calmer, content and happier and I know it’s because the teachers genuinely care as do all the staff. My child is definitely not a number at this school and I would recommend it to anyone.”

“We have been at the college for 3 years now and we absolutely love it. Our daughter is in year 1 and our son is year 10. We couldn’t wish for a better school to send our children to. We love that it is a smaller school. We are extremely happy and would highly recommend the college to other families.”

“We are so happy to be a part of an awesome school. We love the teachers and staff at TMC. My children enjoy going to school and their needs are always catered for. As a primary school teacher myself, I appreciate all the little extra things that go on behind the scenes to make TMC a wonderful place to learn. ”

“Our family absolutely loves TMC! The College has proven to be family oriented as they are generally interested in your child’s family, outside sports and personal interests. TMC and classroom teachers connect with families either on a weekly basis or daily to keep you updated on what your child is doing in the classroom or what the school have done throughout the week. We cannot say enough about TMC. We look forward to starting our other little ones there in the future. ”

“TMC has been a wonderful school for my daughter, she transitioned from a public high school and the move has enable her to have a more targeted learning environment. We have seen a change not only in grades but in her desire to learn.”

“My daughter started here in the last week of term 2 and had been homeschooled previously with a method of “unschooling” ... she couldn’t read. Now she has been at the school for 2 terms and is already reading. I’m very impressed with the school, their kindness and patience.”

“We love the college! My eldest daughter went to a public school in primary and then we relocated to Tamborine Mountain and she started at the college in grade 7. My daughter was struggling in maths in primary school but within 3 months of being at the college she improved and went to excelling in maths. My two younger children are also now at the college and all three children love it. The environment is calm and inviting, every teacher knows of the children and interact with them no matter whether they have taught them or not. As a parent I felt heard and informed. The teachers are happy to be there which means the children love being there too.”

“With the smaller classes sizes and capped student numbers, the teachers are able to provide a more individualised approach to learning. The facilities and resources are truly amazing and help to support the students on their education journey. What is also beneficial is that the fees are inclusive of nearly everything, so its an added bonus!”

“After coming from a very large private school on the GC, we have been blown away by the difference in TMC - the caring that our daughter has experienced is amazing, she is not just a number - her teachers really care about her and know what's going on with her. We're kept in the loop if there's any concerns, or achievements, and her enthusiasm for school has grown every day since making the change over - best decision we ever made was coming to TMC!”
