Middle Years at ABHS

Embarking on the transition to high school is a big step for students and their families and at Adelaide Botanic High School, there is a strong focus on ensuring that this transition is as smooth and successful as possible for everyone involved.

From the outset, it’s important to understand how ABHS does things differently. Traditionally, the eight Australian Curriculum subjects have been taught separately with little connection between them. At ABHS, the Australian Curriculum subjects are taught in four purposefully connected learning areas: Global Perspectives, Lifestyle Choices, STEM and The Arts.
