Hoppers Crossing Secondary College
The College places great importance on developing innovative and challenging educational programs, through which young people recognise the value of growth through learning. This is being achieved through a close working partnership of staff, students, parents and the wider community.
Hoppers Crossing Secondary College aims to achieve the extra-ordinary by providing an education which has a focus on each individual student and developing their potential. Academic rigour is valued at all stages of learning and the classroom focus is on challenge, engagement and achievement.
All staff focus on the delivery of a Common Instructional Teaching Model centred on the 9 High Yield Teaching Strategies that produce significant learning gains for every student. The time and effort that teachers put into their classes ensures the best educational outcomes for our students which has most recently been reflected in our improved VCE Results.
We take pride in offering our students guided support throughout their chosen pathway of VCE, VCAL or VET studies and prepare them for post-secondary options, including tertiary entry and further training or employment, with 82% of our VCE Year 12 students receiving their top tertiary preference in 2014. 86% of our post compulsory students (Years 11 and 12) who graduate from the college are enrolled in either full—time tertiary studies, education training or employment.
