Our school

At Gordonvale State High School our approach to achieving success for each student is clear and simple;  every teacher in our school employs the structure and skills of Explicit Teaching.  We set and communicate clear learning goals for each lesson and follow a process of teaching, checking for students' understanding, guiding students in practising and finally setting and checking independent student practice of new skills. 

We have clear and simple expectations of student learning.  We call these our "Givens":

  • Present all work at a high standard
  • Bring all required equipment to every lesson
  • Use a separate workbook for each subject
  • Be in the right place at the right time.
