Balgowlah Boys High School is at the forefront of successfully educating boys in the new millennium. As a small school of 373 students, set in the physical environment for over twice that number, we have the ideal mix of quality facilities, personalised tuition, small class sizes and cutting edge strategies for maximising boys' performance. 

Traditional boys' attitudes to issues such as dance, music, cooking, public speaking, debating and conflict resolution have been overcome with our students willing to pursue their interests regardless of peer views on what is 'cool'. At Balgowlah Boys we aim to achieve a balance of academic, cultural, sporting and extra curricular achievement. 

Each student is strongly encouraged to participate in some aspects, if not all, of these key areas. We are not satisfied with saying students have "access" to the above; we require involvement/participation to produce real development. We are looking to produce the well rounded young man capable of having most of the skills to succeed in the post school world of further study, work, the community, social environments or the global village.
