Arthur Phillip High School has always been a popular school: parents appreciate the opportunities students have to learn using laptops in a wireless environment. Our aim is to engage students using the technologies of their 21st century digital world. Year 7 students use laptops and participate in an after school homework centre where staff assist them to manage their homework and assignments in their transition to high school.
Our priority is to ensure that each student develops literacy and numeracy skills so that they are able to achieve success in whatever career they choose to pursue.
Our staff embed literacy and numeracy skills in innovative teaching and learning programs. We use individual learning profiles for each student to ensure that their particular needs are met in the classroom.
We believe that parents are an integral part of our school community and engage with them in a range of ways. In today’s busy world we have opened the door to our school through the online environment.
