Aldridge State High School prides itself in providing education for all, reflecting the value of 'Success through Effort' and culture committed to enhancing educational opportunities and improved outcomes for all students.
At Aldridge State High School, classroom teachers in their day-to-day teaching place a high priority on identifying and addressing the learning needs of individual students. Through differentiation, teachers monitor the progress of individuals, identify learning difficulties and tailor classroom activities and assessment task to appropriate levels.

Staff at ASHS aim to enable each student to reach their potential through the provision of educational support models such as; adjusted curriculum & communication, focus on social participation and wellbeing, health and personal care, safety and learning environment/access.

Specialised LEC Programs – P.A.W.S & EAL
We are fortunate enough to have a number of specialised staff in the LEC who run additional programs. Our students can also participate in Animal Assisted Education including the P.A.W.S. Program, where selected classrooms are visited by our qualified Therapy Dogs Monnie & Toby. We also have an Equine Assisted Learning Program where select students are able to visit school pony Pippi for grooming & groundwork exercises. Both programs assist student focus, emotional self-regulation and general wellbeing.
