Students enjoy their beautiful surroundings at Toronto High while getting the best education possible as the teachers encourage all students to ‘strive for higher things’ and achieve their personal best. The success of this approach is reflected in the implementation of effective and well-developed programs and subjects. Many educational activities are provided that promote individual development, both academically and socially, to encourage students to become responsible Australian citizens.
Facilities: The school has benefited from a significant building program over the past three years which has provided a new commercial kitchen, and more recently a Trade Training Centre, with Toronto High being the first school in the area to have this facility.
