The Middle School embraces Years 8, 9 and 10. ‘Every Student, All of the Time, Without Exception’ provides the holistic approach and direction for our Middle School. We pride ourselves on the whole school ethos of nurturing and focusing on the individual student. Our teaching and learning strategies, including appropriate differentiations, have been instigated to ensure each one of our students are provided with every opportunity to achieve their full potential in a safe and caring environment.
Vertical Home Groups are structured into the school houses, Carter, Flynn and Murdoch, comprising of Year Levels 8 to 11. Students are supported by their more senior peers and encouraged to develop relationships that enhance cooperation and collaboration across all of the levels in the various aspects of their schooling.
Class groups based around year levels are structured for academic studies to enable students to work effectively within the requirements of the Australian Curriculum. Broad curriculum choices and extensive extra curricula activities add substance and value to the learning experiences in the Middle School. Students are encouraged to step outside of their comfort zones to explore and experience new opportunities as individuals and in groups. We provide plenty of academic stimulation that is both hands on and technical and diverse enough to nurture your child’s creative interests and talents. It is our vision to create capable individuals of all abilities to be able to take their place in society wherever they may choose, and achieve personal success.
We encourage our students to love and value learning and strive to be and do their best. The academic curriculum at Naracoorte High School is supported by an extensive extracurricular program, providing unique and varied ways for students to achieve balance in their lives as well as expanding their knowledge and taking on challenges beyond the classroom.
