Cronulla High School

Cronulla High School

Cronulla High School is situated a short walk from the great beaches of Cronulla. The school provides a structured learning environment that maximises student achievement. Students and their parents tell us consistently that the most outstanding feature of the school is the excellence of our teachers. They are committed to building relationships based on respect for students and focusing students on success in learning.
Our three school’s goals, drawn from school effectiveness research, reflect the principles that guide our teachers:

  • to raise expectations
  • to communicate with parents and
  • to recognise achievement.
