Smith's Hill High School is a co-educational selective high school situated in central Wollongong. The school seeks to promote excellence in a spirit of trust and co-operation through providing a challenging broadly-based curriculum in a positive, safe and rewarding environment. Our close proximity to the beach, Wollongong CBD, the University of Wollongong, the Illawarra Institute of Technology, Wollongong Entertainment Centre, Illawarra Performing Arts Centre and Beaton Park sporting complex allows us to provide a balanced curriculum in terms of academic pursuits, cultural and sporting experiences.
The curriculum is supplemented by relevant excursions and extra-curricular activities which include camps and national competitions of an academic nature. Students are expected to participate in sport and are encouraged to pursue their strengths in all fields of endeavour. Students who choose to attend the school do so from an area which stretches from the southern suburbs of Sydney to Bateman's Bay in the south. All students are encouraged to: become independent learners; make choices concerning their own learning paths; and to extend themselves through involvement in extra-curricular activities.
