Forest Lake State High School
Our staff are committed to a first class education for every student in our community
It is my honour to welcome you to the Forest Lake SHS community. Our school was established in 2001 and I am the very proud, fourth permanent principal of this great school. I believe it is an absolute jewel in the southwestern suburbs. Forest Lake SHS is a great school with a contemporary approach to education, high expectations, high support and impressive results.
Through a new phase of digital learning our school continues to educate and empower students to become successful global citizens. We are committed to providing every student with an educational program that meets their personal learning needs and develops the 21st century skills they need to prepare them for the many opportunities beyond school.
The Forest Lake lions uphold high PRIDE expectations both individually and as a team because they are the foundation for our school values. We work together to be;
PREPARED RESPECTFUL INCLUSIVE DEDICATED ENGAGED
The Junior Secondary School (years 7, 8 and 9) delivers the approved Australian Curriculum, and ensures our students are on track for success whether in their school, work and or engagement in the wider community. Our junior facilities and expert teachers cater to the unique needs of these very important transition phase from primary school into senior secondary. Our goal is to ensure every student feels a sense of belonging at our school.
In the Senior Secondary School (years 10, 11 and 12) students can choose to study a diverse range of academic and vocational subjects specifically designed to meet their individual preferences and their post school aspirations.
We have a dedicated and highly skilled staff that ensure that your child is receiving the very best education in a safe supportive environment, grounded in positive interactions and relationships. We work in partnership with parents to support their young person’s learning and wellbeing - two critical components of success – and we warmly welcome your involvement in our school.
As a whole school team, we commit to educating and empowering the future citizens of tomorrow.
I look forward to working in partnership with you and your young person on their educational journey, where they are supported to achieve their very best.
