Actively involving students

Adelaide Botanic High School’s established practices engage students in goal-setting, planning, self-monitoring, critical reflection and evaluation, actively involving students in the assessment process as an integral part of all negotiated learning.

With an integrated physical, social, cultural and technological environment, the school offers students a unique opportunity to develop intellectually and personally, through more authentic learning tasks directly related to their own lives and the lives of those around them.

Educational Vision

Our focus in approaching the mandated Australian Curriculum is to hold tight on the standard and allow for curiosity, creativity and action to influence how we get there. This approach creates co-ownership for staff and students, allowing their passions, involvement in design, and personal experiences to impact teaching and learning.

ABHS - Global Perspectives - Small

Learning Areas

Traditionally, the eight Australian Curriculum subjects have been taught separately with little connection between them. At Adelaide Botanic High School, the Australian Curriculum subjects are taught in four purposefully connected learning areas: Global Perspectives, Lifestyle Choices, STEM and The Arts. Students are supported to have genuine choice and voice in their learning so that they can engage and fulfil their aspirations, whatever pathway they decide to pursue.
