Welcome to Para Hills High School, one of the leading secondary schools in Northern Adelaide.
We are a medium sized school of 500 students, with a diverse staff and student population. We are strong believers in supporting students to excel in their studies and chosen career pathways.
Our sense of community is one of our strengths - we are a small but thriving community of learners who have access to innovative and creative curriculum and modern facilities. We teach our students not just Maths and English and the traditional aspects of the curriculum, but also how to be creative problem-solvers who have the resilience and inner resources to succeed in life. We would like our students to excel in their studies, but also know how the world works.
We have a strong focus and interest in performing arts and languages – these are great ways to develop creativity, problem solving and lateral-thinking skills, which will transfer to all other subjects and into life in general.
As a leader, I aim to ensure that everything we do at the school would withstand the test of ‘would I want my child to experience this in this way’. I am grateful for your choice in entrusting us with your young people and I will endeavour to ensure they have a positive and engaging experience of education that will set them up for life.
Our collective goal is to develop young people to be confident in their abilities, secure in their identity, aspiring in their purpose, and valued for their contribution.
