All students at Currumbin Community Special School engage with curriculum appropriate to their age and phase of schooling. In prep year through to year ten, the Australian Curriculum provides the focus for a student's learning. In year eleven and twelve, the Guide to Individual Learning supports their transition to post school life. Alongside the curriculum a focus on literacy and numeracy across all phases of schooling is incorporated. Students are explicitly taught functional life skills to promote independence and improved quality of life.
