Principal’s welcome

Our students are encouraged to achieve their personal best, develop a strong work ethic, enjoy their time at school and support each other.  The development of a caring and supportive school community is at the heart of all we do.  With extensive co-curricula opportunities, Cleveland high students are challenged to develop their academic, sporting, cultural and citizenship talents.
What do we stand for?  We have three fundamental drivers that underpin all we do:
Kaizen – small, continuous focussed improvement every single day
Neoteny -  in scientific terms this means retaining juvenile characteristics into adulthood.  For us this is expressed as cultivating and retaining those habits of mind such as finding humour, responding with wonder and awe, thinking flexibly, creating, imagining and innovating
Ubuntu -  “You are therefore I am” – genuinely defining our wellbeing by the wellbeing of those around us
The data from our school opinion survey shows our students, parents and staff believe this is a good school – we are the school of choice in the Redlands.  Our school opinion data is well above State and like schools, and among the best in Queensland.  Most importantly our students indicate they feel safe, they are happy and they are learning!
Cleveland High is a great school.  Our students are able to achieve whatever they wish, get whatever results they want … if they are not prepared to accept anything less than their best.  All members of our learning community are committed to helping young people reach their full potential at school and make a successful transition to work or further study.
