Greenacre PS has one DoE opportunity class catering for highly achieving Year 5 and Year 6 academically gifted students. This class helps high potential students to learn by grouping them with other high potential students and using specialised teaching methods and educational materials at the appropriate level.
Students need to apply to be placed in an opportunity class and the NSW DoE’s High Performing Students Team administers the opportunity class placement process. Students who are placed attend the opportunity class full time in Years 5 and 6 at the primary school with an opportunity class. It is a two-year placement program.
