York District High School (4109)

School Overview

York District High is an Independent Public school which delivers an education characterized by excellence and innovation. We celebrate achievement yet continue to identify areas for improvement as we strive to be the best we can be. Our dedicated and qualified teaching and support staff provide a safe and nurturing environment for our students and set high expectation. Our students' wellbeing comes first, and we work on the understanding that students who feel happy, safe and part of the community enjoy coming to school therefore leading to positive results in the classroom.

Strong links with our local community are reflected in a supportive school board consisting of staff, student, parent and community representatives, all of whom provide feedback, advice and support on the strategic direction of our school. Our school board meets twice per term. In addition, our school is supported by an active Parents and Citizens Association who over the years have raised funds to support school requirements and add to the aesthetic appeal of our school. Our priorities of: Success for all Students; High Quality Teaching and Leadership; and a Positive School Community Culture underpin decision making in our school.

Specialist facilities enable us to offer a range of programs comprising Music (including Instrumental Music School Services), Visual Arts, Design and Technology, Home Economics, Information Technology, Physical Education, Education Support and Science in a specialist Laboratory all of which ensure our students receive depth and breadth of curriculum.

We recognise that the world is changing, and we are changing with it therefore focusing on delivering 21st century education within the framework of 'High Performance - High Care'.
