Swan View Senior High School is an independent [1] public co-educational high day school, located in Swan View, Western Australia. The school is located within the North Metropolitan Education Region school district, a district of the WA Department of Education. [3]

Independent Public Schools (IPS) refers to an education reform first introduced in Western Australia in 2009 by the Department of Education. An independent public school is a state/public school that, while a part of the state education system, has been granted a higher degree of decision-making authority than a regular, non-independent state school. The term, Independent Public School, has been increasingly used by other state governments in Australia, such as Queensland, to label similar reforms to the governance of their state schools. Federal Australian governments also use the term Independent Public Schools. In February 2014 the Federal Education Minister, Christopher Pyne, announced a $70 million Independent Public Schools Initiative to support 1500 state schools across Australia to become more autonomous.

Mixed-sex education, also known as mixed-gender education, co-education or coeducation, is a system of education where males and females are educated together. Whereas single-sex education was more common up to the 19th century, mixed-sex education has since become standard in many cultures, particularly in Western countries. Single-sex education, however, remains prevalent in many Muslim countries. The relative merits of both systems have been the subject of debate.

A day school—as opposed to a boarding school—is an educational institution where children are given instruction during the day, after which the students return to their homes. A day school has full-day programs.
