Information on Enrolling at KMHS
Kariong Mountains High School is committed to providing a supportive and challenging learning environment in which your child can gain the knowledge and skills they need to grow in confidence as successful life-long learners.
Our school is committed to helping each and every child to reach their potential in an environment that is challenging, yet supportive. Our school is young and has the enthusiasm and optimism of youth in its day-to-day endeavours, use of twenty first century thinking and learning tools and recognition of the complexities of life in today’s society. We offer a quality, holistic education through providing:
- quality learning experiences, complemented by programs about how to learn effectively
- staff with a commitment to critical reflective practice, listening to student voice and participating in on-going professional learning for improved student outcomes
- a range of programs to recognise and reward leadership in learning and relationships across Years 7-12
- a range of programs to support individual wellbeing and resilience
- opportunities for success and participation in a range of activities outside the classroom
- excellent and well-maintained facilities to support a range of learning styles.
Our school is responsive to the voice of the Kariong and Mountains communities. We encourage collaboration with families. Your child won’t be lost in the crowd of a large high school and they will be encouraged to have their say, speak of their concerns and ideas to their teachers, year advisors or the Principal.
