During 2009 the school worked to develop a new model for school improvement. Based on the work of Kaplan and Norton the school has used the methodology of a balanced score card to ensure we focus on continuous improvement across the organisation. As a result Taroona High School has a School Improvement Plan 2009-2012. What this means for us as a school is that we have become a strategy-focused learning organisation which is a leading centre for innovation, creativity and excellence in teaching and learning for all, within a clearly defined organisational values set that governs how we work and relate to each other.

Our culture and our work at Taroona are underpinned by our School Values which the whole staff has developed together. At the core of every interaction and operation at Taroona High School sit the following values:
  • Respect
  • Honesty and Integrity
  • Professional Growth
  • Sense of Belonging
  • Innovation and Creativity
  • Engagement in Learning
As a learning organisation we place students at the centre of all our practices with the aim of "Enriching Lives Through Learning" for our whole school community, students, staff and parents.
