Our school vision

Expert teachers: confident learners

Our school values  

At Park Ridge State High School we celebrate learning, integrity and teamwork!

Our Junior Secondary philosophy (JS@PR)

At Park Ridge State High School we are committed to developing the intellectual, social and emotional wellbeing of our students. We focus squarely on our key question, “Is every student learning?
As a school we recognise that students in the Junior Secondary phase of learning are in a time of significant physical, emotional, social and cognitive change. Having a unique identity at school and being provided with learning experiences that specifically match their developmental needs are essential for us to meet the learning goals of each of our junior secondary students.
Therefore, JS@PR (Junior Secondary at Park Ridge State High School), is committed to key signature classroom practices which include:
 
v  Learning environment: 

            Providing innovative and creative learning environments that embrace visual stimulus

      Using consistent language and ways of working
v  Cooperative learning: Focusing  on cooperative learning strategies where students explicitly learn how to work together and develop strong communication and problem solving skills
v  Lesson development: Embedding high energy learning activities (play), bite sizing lessons and delivering diverse approaches to entering the learning environment
v  Learning culture: Encouraging the use of higher order thinking skills through creative questioning, high yield strategies and a ‘no-opt out’ culture
v  Digital learning: Incorporating engaging ICT’s to meet the needs of a computer literate society
v  Feedback: Developing strong formative assessment and feedback processes that ensure every student knows where they are in the learning and works collaboratively with staff and parents to build effective strategies to set goals and improve.
v  Negotiated curriculum: Negotiating dynamic curriculum and assessment tools to ensure the delivery of an effective, individualised and stimulating learning journey

Our mission is to provide an engaging, relevant, rigorous and high quality education in the junior secondary years to provide a strong foundation for our students’ future success.
