Chatswood High School is situated in extensive grounds close to Chatswood Railway Station and bus terminal. The school?s multicultural population prides itself on its harmony and vitality.
Chatswood is a diverse, comprehensive, coeducational high school. This is exemplified by the breadth of the student population. As well as mainstream enrolments, the school is now part of the NSW Selective Schools program with two selective entry classes each year, and there is a support unit for students with mild or moderate learning disabilities and a thriving Intensive English Centre which provides English teaching to newcomers in preparation for their integration into mainstream schools. In addition to the school?s broad academic program students have many enrichment opportunities including a well-supported Duke of Edinburgh scheme, an outstanding extra curricular music program encompassing three bands, guitar and string ensembles, a school musical, Tournament of the Minds, debating, chess, and a rugby exchange arrangement with Suginami Rugby school in Japan.
All teaching staff have received professional development through the University of New South Wales in the teaching of gifted and talented students. The school has a strong student welfare emphasis and a student management program based on recognising and encouraging achievement.
