Swan View Senior High School opened on 7 February 1977 as Swan View High School enrolling students in Years 8 and 9. In 1985, the School became a Senior High School, enrolling students in Years 8 – 12.
The School is located in the eastern suburb of Swan View. It is approximately 25 kilometres from the Perth central business district in the Perth Hills on the edge of the Darling Scarp, just to the west of the John Forrest National Park.
Swan View Senior High School serves all or parts of the following suburbs: Bellevue, Darlington, Greenmount, Jane Brook, Midvale, Middle Swan, Stratton, and Swan View.
In 2015, the School welcomed Year 7 students as the first year in secondary school. Today, the School is a Year 7 – 12 campus offering academic programs across the seven Learning Areas, including: The Arts, English, Health and Physical Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, Mathematics, Science, and Technologies.
Students graduating from Swan View are not only well equipped for enrolment in tertiary courses at University or at TAFE, but also for coping with the demands that employment places upon them if they choose to go out into the world of work.
