Middle School

Salisbury High School has a well-established Middle School focus for students in Years 8-10.

Students move through the middle school with the same Care teacher to establish a relationship with a trusted adult at the school and this also allows families to build a strong connection to the Care teacher and the school.

Our learning is based on the Australian Curriculum and we offer a wide range of curriculum including, English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Physical Education, as well as a range of elective subjects including: Languages (Italian), Home Economics, Art, Drama, Dance, Technology Studies and Digital Technology. Teachers organise rigorous, relevant and engaging learning to address the individual learning needs of their students. We have high expectations that completion is achieved and encourage our learners to take full opportunities/advantage of the programs we offer.

We acknowledge and celebrate student success across the Middle School.

Years 8,9 and 10

In years 8, 9 and 10 at Salisbury High School we believe it is imperative that teaching and learning should be worthwhile, engaging and challenging for all students. Our teachers cater for the diversity of individual learning needs by offering curriculum flexibility and allowing students and families to be actively involved in the planning process.
