Our Vision: To open minds, inspire hearts and nurture dreams.
Our Mission: To empower young people to make a positive difference.
Trust, respect, equality, inclusion, collaboration and balance.
These are the key principles on which Hillbrook was founded and they underpin everything we do.
"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."
"Educating the mind without educating the heart is not education at all." Aristotle
A Balanced Approach
Hillbrook is a co-educational secondary school, offering an academic curriculum, located in Brisbane’s inner north-west. At Hillbrook, we are building the capacity of young people as lifelong learners. We aim to provide a realistic and stimulating environment where young men and women learn to challenge and question, to respect one another’s contributions, to enjoy one another’s company and to work effectively together at an early age. We give equal priority to intellectual, spiritual, personal and physical growth and encourage our community to develop a strong sense of balance in their lives. We hope that during their journey at Hillbrook students are empowered to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
In the early 1980s, a small group of dedicated teachers dared to dream.
They shared a vision of a dynamic new school, different from the traditional schools of the past. Their vision is reflected to this day in every aspect of the school's activities, in our motto - 'In Balance We Grow' and in our balanced focus on intellectual, physical, personal and spiritual growth.
