Principal’s Message

Warrandyte High School is a great school. It has strong links with its local community. A beautiful, natural setting just 20 km from the heart of Melbourne and a well-earned reputation for excellence across a broad range of curriculum offerings.

Our teachers are passionate and dedicated to achieving the best possible learning outcomes for our students. They embrace the philosophy of life-long learning and work in professional learning teams to develop and implement relevant and innovative programs such as the Big History program, the Taking the Challenge program, the Step Up program, Brainology and our Year 7 and Year 8 English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities Active Learning Programs. It requires enthusiasm and dedication to run these programs, and we’ve got a lot of it.
