Values and vision

Matthew Moss High School’s mission is to empower young people to develop a love of learning, in order to help them gain satisfaction from education and to hone skills that are of significant value to others. It believes that the desire to learn is universal and that with hard work anything can be achieved.

Teachers operate under a strategy of individual care, developing their knowledge base and skills with “adult-to-adult discourse”, which aims to challenge and critique.
