Balaklava High School

Balaklava High School provides a comprehensive curriculum, allowing students the opportunity to experience success in many fields of endeavour. Curriculum diversity is highly valued. Students are able to choose from more traditional academic pathways and from a broad range of vocational pathways including the school’s more specialised areas of engineering, primary industries, building and construction, and hospitality.

School operations are underpinned by:

Our Vision:  Through the highest quality teaching, in a caring and challenging learning environment, students are inspired and supported to achieve their best so that they can thrive in their life beyond school.

Our Values of:  Positive relationships, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Excellence

Our Mission:  To provide learning and wellbeing growth for all students through the development of powerful learners with growth mindsets.

Our motto, ‘Excel today to challenge the future’

The school has a proud tradition of student success in both academic and vocational pathways and has a very strong reputation as a leading provider of high quality vocational programs. Strongly focused on ensuring quality teaching and continual improvement in student learning outcomes, the school seeks to make learning visible and to consistently develop the capacity of students to be increasingly resilient, self-directed and powerful learners who will take these capacities into their lives beyond the school.

Balaklava High School is a caring country school that aims to equip students to excel. We are large enough to have broad curriculum choice and varied extracurricular activities, and yet are small enough to have a real sense of community.
