Junior School

The Junior School is a very special part of the Snowy Mountains Grammar School educational model. The Junior School years are fundamental in the establishment of strong educational foundations and work practices.

With small class sizes and a total population of up to 80, the concept of individual programming at SMGS Junior School is a reality, not a dream. Our students can gain full benefit from the close attention to detail that is an integral part of everyday life in the Junior School.

Unrivalled Opportunity

Located on the shores of Lake Jindabyne in the foothills of Australia’s beautiful alpine region, Snowy Mountains Grammar School provides endless opportunities for students. Complementing our strong academic programs is our rich sporting heritage, with Junior School students competing in a variety of Snowsports and Equestrian events throughout the year.

Our location ensures our students are well connected with the environment and the community.
