GSHS Core Values
INTEGRITY
The fundamental relationship between our words and deeds is one that we hold in the highest regard. What we say and what we do is always in agreement. Our unassailable moral character is visible in all of our relationships and all of our choices.
BELONGING
We are a family and as such we ensure that everyone knows that they matter, that they are important, that they are cared for and that they are valued. We have a home here, in Groote Schuur High, where we know we are cherished.
GROWTH
As human beings, we believe that we all have the inborn ability to grow. We acknowledge and celebrate the development of our skills, of our acquisition of knowledge and of our enhanced understanding of the world around us. Learning is a lifelong endeavor that helps us to grow into well balanced, caring human beings.
EXCELLENCE
Our determination to excel is one of the corner stones of our school. Excellence is our benchmark and we attain quality in all that we do.  We understand that our excellence is attained not just in service of ourselves as individuals, but in service to our greater community around us.
ACCOUNTABILITY
We take responsibility for our words, our choices, our responses and our thoughts, and we realize that only then, when we take responsibility, do we allow ourselves to grow into our full potential. We learn from our mistakes and we grow in strength because of these lessons.
SERVICE
What we do changes the world around us. We make a difference in our school community, as well as in the communities in which we live and through which we move. Meeting the needs of others – giving of our time and our energy – meaningfully alters the lives of others and of ourselves.
