Our ethos at Carleton High is based on our mantra of 'Culture + Consistency = Excellence'. Put simply this means we have a culture of high aspirations for all, where standards are high and simple highly effective strategies are implemented consistently daily. This mantra creates an environment where teachers can really focus on their teaching and students on their learning. We provide a high-quality experience in a disciplined environment where behaviour is managed consistently – students understand our high expectations and how to meet them. Students who meet and exceed expectations are rewarded through our EPRAISE points system. This approach develops an environment where students understand that there is no limit placed on what they can achieve.

Our vision is to provide the best possible quality of education within an outstanding environment. We are on an exciting journey to this end, consistently and regularly delivering improvements.
