Welcome to Athelstone School

To learn is to grow…

Athelstone School is located in the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges between the River Torrens in the north and the Black Hill / Morialta Conservation Parks in the south. Our school has very strong links to the community.

It is the mission of our school to create a safe and challenging environment, where all learners have the opportunity to develop high order skills and develop the knowledge, deep understandings and personal qualities necessary to flourish and succeed in life and work in the 21st century.

Athelstone School is committed to providing quality teaching and positive learning outcomes for all students. The students will engage in the curriculum and programs, which will enhance their growth as individuals and allow them to achieve their highest potential.

In providing a supportive teaching environment we are committed to:
• a relevant, purposeful and balanced curriculum
• a harassment free environment
• working collaboratively with parents and students
• the principles of social justice
• democratic decision making

Being my best at all times
Being a great role model and making good choices
Being kind to myself, others and the environment
Being honest and standing up for what I believe
