Mission and values


The School’s purpose is to: Achieve the best possible educational outcomes for all students.


Care, Consideration and Co-operation
Smaller, Smarter, Safer
Smaller means smaller class sizes and smaller teacher-to-student ratios. This enables maximization of student outcomes.
Smarter means doing things more innovatively, achievement of strong Grade 12 exit data and the maximization of all school resources into quality learning and teaching experiences for all stakeholders.
Safer means a school environment free of bullying and harassment, and one in which students feel comfortable about their education setting and experiences.  100% of parents state that their child feels safe at Burnside State High School.
