The infinite opportunities of the future will be the proving grounds of nimble young minds. So as parents and educators, we owe it to our young people to equip them today with the knowledge, skills and attributes they will need to thrive tomorrow.ABOUT ABHS
Adelaide Botanic High School students engage in learning tasks which are about connecting, creating, communicating, co-ordinating and collaborating.LEARNING AT ABHS
Alistair Brown - Foundation Principal
As an educator and leader for over 35 years, and a father for almost as long, I understand there are few decisions in life as important as the choice of school for your child. We want them to grow up to be healthy, capable adults; adaptable, resilient and prepared for life beyond school.
The school features six learning levels plus a basement and an open-planned atrium space at ground level. Learning spaces have been designed to cater for a contemporary, interdisciplinary approach to learning which mirrors what students can expect when they enter tertiary study or the modern workplace.Our Facilities
While our staff and students come from far and wide, they come together with a true sense of pride and belonging – both in themselves and their school. This ensures our future leaders are part of a community that fosters a culture of learning, support and acceptance.
By encouraging young people’s natural curiosities, and granting independence and opportunities to share, we stimulate their thirst for exploration and knowledge. With this sense of wonder ignited, their only limits are the bounds of the imagination.
When we look to young people we see boundless potential. By instilling in them the feeling of limitlessness, we broaden the realms of academic possibility. Because we are looking at more than results, we are looking at how we can better Adelaide, South Australia and each other.
Honouring the foundations of the past, we’ve taken the best of today and built upwards. Long before the first plan was drawn, we asked: how can our school building create dynamic learning for every student? The answer: a meticulously researched, purpose-built environment where the architecture informs and enhances every child’s learning experience.
No need for excursions. Just step outside to explore beautiful gardens, museums, Adelaide Zoo and the State Library of South Australia. From the heart of Adelaide’s cultural, education and business precinct, our students will learn as members of an inspiring community of creatives, entrepreneurs and visionary thinkers.
