Our mission, to develop young people confident in their abilities, secure in their identity, aspiring in their purpose, and valued for their contribution, reflects a culture of high achievement and enriched learning across our student, staff and community. Each student at Para Hills High School is unique in their interests, abilities, culture and career pathways. As a school, our number one priority is to nurture our students’ talents and foster a culture of personal growth where they can harness their individuality and turn it into a success. 

THE PARA HILLS PROMISE

At Para Hills High School, our attitude to education develops the unique talents and interest of our students. Our highly skilled staff work closely with the student leadership team and governing council to ensure our students remain engaged in learning. Our commitment to maintaining open and honest communication between the school and parents has enabled our students to have excellent attendance rates and a high student retention rate. 

Our improvement goals for 2019-21 are:

  • to improve and extend all students' ability to 'read to learn' in every learning area.
  • to improve all students' ability to write and edit longer and increasingly more complex written texts.
  • to increase students high achievement in middle and senior school.

We are aiming to ensure that our education and wellbeing programs are of the best possible quality. We provide a safe and supportive environment that promotes mutual respect and tolerance for others, self-confidence, responsible decision making and acknowledges and celebrates personal and team achievement.
