Our Vision & Philosophy

Fitzroy High School values children as individual learners who are full of potential and capable of excellence.

Our Vision

Our students will be lifelong learners, reflective and creative thinkers, responsible and active citizens, and resilient and adaptable problem solvers able to navigate through an uncertain and constantly changing future.

Fitzroy is a learning community where students and teams of teachers work together to:

  • achieve high standards so that all students fulfil their capabilities in academic, intellectual, social, emotional and physical development;
  • celebrate diversity and embrace individual differences, including class, culture, race, gender, sexuality and ethnicity;
  • build a cohesive, compassionate and proud school community with a productive legacy for the future;
  • develop beyond our current capacity through continuous change and review; and
  • participate in and contribute to our wider community.

Our Philosophy

Fitzroy High embraces a bold and ambitious future: striving for excellence and equity.

We aim to be a humane learning community in which teachers use relationships to deepen their knowledge of students. This is in order to engage all students in an intellectually challenging education based on powerful ideas, help them toward social maturity, and prepare them for a life of meaningful possibilities and active participation as Australian and global citizens.

The school places students at the centre of their learning and the structure of the school is organised around meeting the educational needs of our students. With involvement of parents and carers, teachers support students to make choices about their learning and development, maximising their performance across a broad range of subjects and life skills.
