SHS History

The story of Sylvania High School is one of endurance, at times survival, but importantly one of success. It is the story of a small school seeking to make a name for itself in the competitive environment of education in the Sutherland Shire of Southern Sydney.

The school’s origins are humble, much like the suburb itself that was to become the gateway to the Shire. Over the decades, Sylvania has changed from a mostly rural area on the edge of the bush to prime real estate in Sydney’s property boom.
