Inclusion, effort, respect and resilience have been adopted as values emblematic of Katherine High School.
The move follows voting by students, families and community members to identify the three most important school qualities.
Principal Daniel Murtas said last year's survey has helped frame the future expectations and standards of the school.
"We conducted a poll using newsletters, online surveys, face to face questionnaires and social media," he said.
"Students and community members helped create a common understanding of these values to be shared across the school and within the town and the region.
"The school community has collaborated with local artists and student musicians to communicate these values and expectations across all sectors and to celebrate the cultures, achievements and strengths of each student and their families.
"At Katherine High School we nurture expectations of strong and positive behaviours in our students. And to help those who demonstrate disruptive conduct we've introduced responsible thinking practices and a responsible thinking classroom."
Mr Murtas said unruly students can choose to retire to the classroom and work with a teacher to restore the student-teacher relationship, amend their behaviour, re-engage with their education and improve the quality of the learning experience for all students.
"At Katherine High School the school community believes all students have the right to learn and all teachers have the right to teach.

"Our staff meet regularly to analyse key data, create, set and implement improvement plans and review the impact of these plans in five-week cycles," he said.
