Acting Principal's Welcome
It is my privilege as the Acting Principal of Adelaide High School to welcome you to the Adelaide High School website.
Details within our website demonstrate that we work diligently as a united community to offer students a vast range of learning opportunities. Our orderly and focussed learning environment supports students to achieve personal, academic,
aesthetic and sporting goals, while developing positive relationships.
Adelaide High School
Adelaide High School, established in 1908, is the first free high school in South Australia, catering for over 1400 students from Years 8 -12. Since it was founded Adelaide High School has
been recognised as a successful and innovative school offering students care and attention in a supportive community environment. It has held this reputation since its inception.
All programs on offer at Adelaide High School are underpinned by our school motto non scholae sed vitae, not only for school but for life. Our curriculum, co-curricular program and
House system challenge, engage, enrich, support and accelerate student learning. The Pastoral Care programs provide opportunities for students to learn about themselves and to
develop skills to contribute positively to our school and local and global communities.
