What to expect in high school

Starting high school is an exciting time, for students and their parents.

Moving to a high school class will be a new experience for your child. There will be some differences in routines, expectations and learning. Your child may feel a little insecure at first. However, it is also an exciting time with many opportunities and a broader curriculum.

In high school students will be introduced to subjects they haven't experienced before. They will also be expected to be more independent, self-reliant and self-motivated than in primary school. Lessons will often be more student-centred and teachers will become resources and guides, rather than instructors.
