Ross Smith Secondary School is a complex school with students with a diversity ofambitions, learning needs, cultural backgrounds and life experiences. 

Our students are accepting of all, and form supportive friendshipgroups through their time with us, and nowhere is this betterdemonstrated than by the 100 or so final year students this year whodefinitely leave us on a 'high'. 

We believe that the educationalprograms we offer provide a range of career pathways - to Universityand TAFE, and into the more Vocationally oriented directions. We havefocused this year on developing ways of improving the engagement ofstudents in the classroom, and as well we utilise the learning thatcomes from Curriculum based excursions.
