Adelaide High School's facilities are excellent. Built in the early 1950s, the Heritage listed buildings have been redeveloped and enhanced during the past few years.
A major building program took place between 2013 and 2015 which saw the addition of a state-of-the-art new wing, the Charles Todd Building, and the complete refurbishment of another.
The new wing contains general learning areas, a drama workshop, PE laboratory, three
science laboratories, and Library, IT Help Desk and an Infotainment / Recording Booth.
The refurbished building contains Languages, Art and Home Economics and a Mathematics Centre.
2016 saw the redevelopment of one of the Technology rooms into a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Maths) Room. In 2019 the Performing Arts area was completely redeveloped and in 2020 a major building program will begin to accommodate Year 7s in 2022.
Students learn in air-conditioned classrooms, enjoy modern, well-equipped Design and Technology suites, as well as computer suites housing networked PCs. The school also boasts a wireless network for use by lap-top computers. The school's science labs and lecture theatres have been upgraded to be amongst the best in the state.
Our Library staff support staff and students with their Intranet for online learning and home study. The Library is a bright and open facility, divided into areas for class research and resource based learning, small group research, quiet reading and Senior School private study. Computers also provide quick and easy access to the school catalogue of all resources including text books, equipment and DVDs.
The parklands provide additional facilities to our modern gymnasium and weights room. Students have access to upgraded tennis, basketball and netball courts, cricket nets, several ovals and a number of cricket turf wickets. The school's boatshed on the banks of the River Torrens houses not only the rowing equipment and provides the training facility for the rowing crews, but is extensively used by staff and students for co-curricular activities. The second boatshed at West Lakes is a shared facility with two other public rowing schools.
The school also houses a Performing Arts Centre for music, drama and dance, a Language Centre, STEM facilities, a Hall with state of the art sound and lighting equipment and a Centre for Deaf and Hard of Hearing. The Performing Arts facilities were upgraded in 2019.
