Principal’s Message

Killara High School educates for life, providing a diversity of learning to support the development of every student in our care.

Killara High School has a rich history as an outstanding secondary school, but it also has a vibrant present and an exciting future.

Our school is a very special place. The academic success of Killara High School is well-known, and our students go on to achieve in all walks of life.

Killara High School values achievement in all its forms and it is our focus on achieving personal bests and individualised learning that makes our school great. The broadest possible curriculum choice, personalised learning pathways, and an extensive program of curriculum enrichment support the growth and development of every student.

The provision of opportunities to build confidence and self-esteem, and the promotion of positive attitudes is central to the ethos of this school. Students, staff and families work hard to ensure the ethos of fairness and kindness upon which all action is based. We empower students not just to be active learners but also to be caring, compassionate people who work hard and help each other.

We are your local community school, and we enjoy the challenge of helping to build active and ethical citizens who celebrate difference. Killara students look beyond the school gates to help those less fortunate, and in doing so, make not just intellectual but emotional connections to the world.

I welcome you to our website, and I am always pleased and proud to welcome you to our school.
