There are few decisions that parents face which are more daunting than which school to send your child to, given the importance of an all-round education on a child’s future.
Lithgow High School has strong academic and sporting traditions and is successful in providing a broad curriculum for students from the Lithgow and surrounding areas.
Tonight the school is holding an information evening where parents, who are looking for a secondary school for their child, can discuss issues with Lithgow High School representatives.
Lithgow High’s continuing success is reflected in achievement across all key learning areas, with the school receiving ongoing regional state and national awards for student film making, outstanding results in the Visual Arts, consistent improvement and a continuing pattern of outstanding academic achievements in the Higher School Certificate.
Last year, Lithgow High had exceptional successes with all Year 12 students receiving their HSC and final ATAR ranking. Jarrad Pringle achieved the top score with an ATAR of 97.1, closely followed by Joshua Kitchner with an ATAR of 96.3.

Increasingly, Lithgow High works with community and academic partners to broaden subject options, including more flexible vocational options in stages 5 and 6 of the curriculum.
Students are expected and encouraged to be “respectful, safe and responsible learners”.
The school is part of the Positive Behaviour for Learning initiative and VIVO rewards program.
VIVO is a web-based system that rewards students for positive behaviour – both inside and outside the classroom. It encourages students to save their reward points and then redeem them from an online shop. VIVO works for the whole school, helping to improve attendance rates, academic performance and enrich behaviour and well-being.
Additional staff, resources and training enhances student performance in literacy, numeracy, technology, leadership and learning.
Senior tutors in the library have also become a very valuable resource, helping senior students improve their overall results.
Students are able to access Mrs Willis and Mrs Beutel in the library all day during study periods and after school Monday - Thursday until 5pm.
Free tutoring from Monday to Thursday, it doesn't get any better than that!
Head to the Lithgow High School’s Parent Information Evening tonight in the library between 6-7.30pm.
