Welcome to Auburn High School

Our school opened in 2014 with a vision of becoming a high performing government school of first choice in the area. We are well on our way in achieving this vision, with increasing student numbers and strong student growth data. Through high quality learning we aim to create global citizens who are successful in their lives and careers and to equip them with the skills and attributes to form positive relationships.

Our positive and welcoming school culture is underpinned by having high expectations and our school values of Diversity, Aspiration, Respect, Excellence (DARE). This is strengthened by our student leadership structure where House Captains across Years 7-12 are actively involved in leading whole school activities and initiatives. There is an extensive extracurricular program where all students can strive to attain badges and excel in the areas of Communication, STEM, Arts, Philanthropy and Sport. The extensive range of extracurricular and sporting activities are offered during lunchtimes and after school.

Our teaching and learning culture is focused on challenging and growing all students and our teachers are exemplary educators. We continuously focus on improving our practices, and use data to inform our planning and teaching for each student. Our partnerships with universities ensure that our work is based on the latest research and is having an impact on student learning. We have a specialisation in Chinese and French language and our unique programs have received national and international recognition. Our language programs are tiered, allowing students to enter at their required levels.

We also offer a SEAL program and we are one of the accredited TAASS schools in Victoria, which recognises the high standard of provision of programs offered to our high achieving students. We are also an accredited International Student Provider and offer our international students a supportive environment and exemplary teachers.

I would like to invite families to come and visit our school on one of our weekly tours, and observe firsthand the innovative and exciting programs that are happening in our school.
