Mission statement: 'A school community fostering creativity, individuality and leadership while striving for excellence in teaching and learning.'
Mosman High is a comprehensive coeducational secondary school of approximately 1000 students with an outstanding reputation for academic achievement and success in the creative and performing arts. The school is conveniently located on Sydney's lower North Shore, in the business and shopping district of Mosman - a harbourside suburb just five kilometres from the heart of Sydney, near Balmoral Beach and the famous Taronga Park Zoo, with easy access to bus and ferries.
The school offers highly sought after special programs for students in drama, academia, music, Chinese and visual arts. With over 90% of HSC students gaining first round university offers and a strong record of academic excellence, Mosman High has been considered for many years as one of the top schools in New South Wales.
The school is fully wireless, with iMac computer and PC laboratories and all classrooms have Interactive Whiteboards. Students use Edmodo as a learning platform and as a BYOD school, all students have laptop computers. The computers are cross platform, with students being trained in both Apple and Windows software. Mosman High follows a "Bring Your Own Device" technology program.
The science laboratories are modern and well-resourced. The TAS faculty has excellent woodwork and metalwork rooms as well as a major projects room and a recently completed commercial kitchen. The visual arts department has a fully equipped ceramics room, as well as two darkrooms, excellent print making facilities and several studio spaces. The performing arts faculty benefits from a fully equipped theatre and a large auditorium for concerts and music performances as well as social functions.
Library hours: Monday - Friday, 8am - 3.30pm
Our library is a multi-media educational resource centre for the whole school. As well as housing a very large up-to-date fiction area catering for all age groups, the library is also the place for finding material for assignments, to study for tests, to catch up on homework, to play chess, to browse the Internet or to just catch up with friends.
It's a place where senior students may come at any time to do research using books, the CD ROM network, the Internet, the World Magazine database, the Sydney Morning Herald database, an extensive collection of vertical files and many other resources. The library is also wireless, so that students may borrow laptops and work independently doing internet research.
Fitness through sport and exercise is highly valued at Mosman High. The school has a tennis court, two full size basketball courts, netball courts and an exercise circuit. In close proximity to first class ovals as well as the harbour, Mosman High also provides a range of water sports including kayaking, surfing and sailing.
