Principal Welcome

Taroona High School is the largest Secondary School in Tasmania catering for all students Year 7 through to Year 12.  2024 sees our Year 11/12 course provision solidified and 50 students continuing their studies through a Taroona High School. 

Our focus this year is on ensuring each and every student’s learning and wellbeing and supported, fostered and maximised.  We aim to do this through consistent practice of all of our teachers that are based upon our Taroona High School Values and our Universal Design for Learning (UDL) approaches. 

Our focus on understanding and offering differentiated support for all students means that we have a range of staff with a wide variety of experiences and approaches to developing positive relationships and opportunities for support.  We are constantly looking for ways to enhance the teaching, learning and wellbeing for all members of our THS community.

Parents, students and members of the community highly value the outstanding facilities available at the school. Our physical location, nestled on the shore of the Derwent Estuary, provides our students with a learning environment the equal of any in the world. We proudly utilise this unique environment through our range of Outdoor Education, Science and Physical Education courses, to build a sustainable future whilst reflecting on our shared histories with the Tasmanian aboriginal people; the muwinina people, from this land nipaluna.

Taroona High School prides itself on the variety of educational and curriculum offerings that are available to all students.  We believe that engagement in learning is most consistently achieved when students are able to learn in the areas that they are passionate about.

We pride ourselves on being a highly inclusive community that values acceptance over tolerance, wherein the rich diversity of students means everyone can find their ‘people’ and feel connected. Our school structures and support systems allow a range of ways for students and staff to connect, providing options for students to access support and be heard on diverse issues that influence the running of the school. We take every opportunity to celebrate growth in all areas of the school, from student learning, to sporting achievements and personal endeavours.

Taroona High School takes great pride in our past and current students and their achievements.  We look forward to welcoming future students to our school and nurturing their passions and connections to make our community and island home a better place for all.
