North Rockhampton State High is a large Band 10 co-educational school situated in the centre of North Rockhampton. Currently, the school has a student population of about 1040 students and eighty two teaching staff. A large Special Education Unit and a link with the Full Service School in the Canning Street annexe provide additional support structures within the school.
The school has an extensive range of curriculum offerings, one of the largest in the Rockhampton district, with growing flexibility for students in the senior phase. TAFE link courses, school-based traineeships, structured work placements and alternative programs for students all contribute to a diverse and futures-orientated approach to schooling.
The school is committed to an educational philosophy that aims to develop attitudes, skills and essential knowledges as a foundation of contemporary learning. Teaching which is rich in intellectual rigour, critical thinking and connectedness to the real world embedded with character building and ethics, prepares our students as global citizens.
