Welcome to Maitland High School

A message from Principal, Ms Paula Graham

Why we are seen as 'the school on the up' in the community!

 

Maitland High School is the second oldest state high school in Australia. It has a very rich history and a strong position in the community which provides a stable platform for the school to look to the future. Our school motto, “En Avant” (Go Forward) encapsulates the school’s aim to develop a sense of future: of capacity, achievement and success, in all students. Our 2015-17 School Plan captures the focus of the school: 'Successful Teachers, Successful Students, Successful School'. The school is increasingly the talk of the community as the school 'on the move' in the area! Why?

Can a public high school, which is open to all students, really have settled classrooms, high expectations of student behaviour and quality learning? Proudly, YES!

 

Maitland High School is a very special place where real vibrancy and a sense of community exist and are promoted through inclusive curricular and co-curricular activities. We are very proud of our continuing improvement and the recognition of our school as a place of settled classrooms, engaged learners and positive student relationships. This was recognised recently (Nov 2016) when one of our head teachers was at an HSC Marking Centre. On hearing that she was from Maitland High School, other HSC markers from the Hunter area exclaimed; "Oh, that's the school we hear so much about! We hear great things are happening there and that it is really on the move!? You must love working there!?". The head teacher delightedly told this to colleagues in a Staff Meeting at the end of the year - her pride in our school's recognition, and that of her colleagues on hearing this, was wonderful to see! This pride and positivity is also reflected in our exceptionally high teacher morale and commitment to the school: in the end of 2016 Staff Survey, 99% of all teaching staff reported that they enjoyed working at MHS. This translates into enthusiastic and committed teachers in high-performing and well-supported classrooms. Staff morale is a telling indicator in a school: MHS is a healthy, happy community and has a wonderful staff who care greatly about our students and their successes.
