We warmly welcome all students and their families to Roma Mitchell Secondary College – a school I’ve been proud to lead since 2011.
The school has been designed with a ‘schools within a school’ concept.
As a large school we are able to provide a very broad curriculum as well as providing smaller learning communities, which are safe and supportive, as middle and senior schools within each campus.
Our teaching team has developed a rigorous curriculum that raises the academic expectations of our students. It has a focus on improving literacy and numeracy and is designed to support students aspiring to university, TAFE and other community pathways.
We have been authorised by the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organisation to deliver the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IBMYP) to our Years 8, 9 and 10 students.
Our Girls’ Education Campus – which is one of only two ‘girls-only’ public schools in South Australia – focuses on promoting leadership, academic excellence and equity within an all girls’ learning environment.
We deliver a number of specialist programs including our Specialist Mathematics, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Specialist Sport in cycling, hockey and soccer; a gifted and talented program; international programs and vocational education and training (VET) programs.
Since the school opened we have consistently seen improvements in our students’ levels of engagement and in academic results across all year levels.
Our South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) achievement rates have virtually doubled from 57% in 2010 to 96.34% in 2016. Our top student and DUX of College in 2016 achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) score on 99.95. Three students in total achieved an ATAR of 99.95 and 25 students achieved an ATAR of 85 plus.
We are committed to seeing our school continue to grow and develop new and innovative ways to utilise our contemporary facilities and technologies to ensure our students are always engaged in current 21st century learning.
We are dedicated to working closely and in partnership with our students and their families or carers, so that together we can meet the learning needs and potential of each and every student – and support every family.
We look forward to welcoming you to Roma Mitchell Secondary College.
