A Positive Learning Environment

Our positive learning environment is an essential key to success for Harristown State High Students. Each student has an academic coach who oversees his/her academic progress. Enjoyment of learning is equally important for us and our students consistently rate the school highly in the Department of Education's School Opinion Survey. Learning at Harristown State High is designed to be flexible and exciting.

Students, together with parents/carers, are encouraged to take responsibility for their pathways of learning.​
