Principal's Welcome

Adelaide High has a heartbeat and a soul which is shaped by our students, staff, families, Old Scholars and the wider community. 

Situated in the west of the city and close to all public transport, Adelaide High utilises its unique location to extend learning opportunities beyond the boundaries of the classroom. Fostering strong partnerships with corporations such as SAHMRI, the universities and the Royal Adelaide Hospital, are just some examples of how learning is connected within a genuine and meaningful context.
