At Kew High School we encourage our students to live by our motto Aspire, strive and achieve. Our values are clearly articulated. These are:
Due to a distinct emphasis on the importance of relationships, the creation of shared norms and agreed behaviours and a carefully managed wellbeing structure there is strong understanding about how all school community members want to be treated and what constitutes appropriate behaviour. As a general rule our students are well-motivated, interested in their studies and feel connected to the school.
We remind our students that they do not have to be the best they have to be their best. This encourages them to make the most of their opportunities. We focus on their strengths and the development of their capacity as individuals.
