About Applecross Senior High School

Applecross Senior High School was established in 1958. It is located in the pleasant near-riverside suburb of Ardross. The school has established and sustained a reputation for high academic, sporting and cultural achievements, winning many academic exhibitions, awards and competitions, and is often placed among the highest performing public high schools.

Applecross, Ardross, Booragoon, Brentwood, Mt Pleasant and Winthrop are the local-intake area primary schools for Applecross Senior High School.

About 70 percent of our students seek with success to enter a university, and others achieve entry to Technical and Further Education (TAFE) or directly to employment. Those achieving university entrance frequently do so with higher than the State entry Tertiary Entrance Rank (TER), and generally continue to successful completion of their qualifications.

The school celebrates its cultural diversity, with approximately 50 percent of its student population from non-European backgrounds.

Well known alumni include media personalities Deborah Kennedy and Mara Pritchard, Maritime Museum Director Graeme Henderson, AFL footballer Darren Bennett, and political cartoonist Dean Alston.

Parent involvement is valued and encouraged through the Parents and Citizens Association, canteen, school committees, and the School Council. Active parent groups support the programs in Art, Music, and Tennis.
