Coreen is an aboriginal word meaning 'the last of the hills'.

Coreen School was established as a special school for children with learning difficulties in January 1970. Prior to this, four classrooms had occupied the site for some years as an annexe to Blacktown Public School.

During 1977 a major programme of renovations and additions was undertaken by the Department of Public Works.

Designed originally to cater for children from infants through secondary ages, Coreen contains classrooms which may be used in a variety of ways, due to the flexible nature of the design.

Coreen School is now a NSW Department of Education school for high school students with assessed additional needs in learning and behaviour. Students are referred to Coreen School through a regional placement panel and parents inspect the school prior to enrolment.

Coreen School has a maximum of 49 students at the main campus, and a further 21 students at the Coreen Tutorial Centre campus. There are a total of 10 classes across both campuses.

Coreen School is well resourced with facilities including: Visual Arts and Industrial Arts rooms, Hospitality Trade Centre, library and community connections room; a swimming pool, hall, all weather artificial turf court, oval, sports sheds with bikes and three school buses.
