Why choose our school?

School Vision

Welcome to Yeppoon State High School, a secondary education centre that strives for educational excellence. Central to this belief is the challenge we set ourselves to provide an innovative and inspiring curriculum. 


Teaching and learning is at the core of all we do and high quality learning experiences are purposefully designed to develop the attributes of life-long learners. In this way, each individual student will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, practices and aptitudes necessary to be an engaged, robust 21st century citizen capable of shaping their own career and employment options. By choosing our school for your child’s educational needs we believe you have invested wisely.


At Yeppoon State High School, emphasis is placed on academic outcomes. We also believe that the development of a holistic education through the teaching of values and ethics instils in our graduates a sense of decency and respect for others.  Our graduates are well-placed to contribute positively to society as self-aware and empathetic individuals. 


Teaching staff are enthusiastic in their desire to be experts in their curriculum fields and they embrace current trends in praxis and pedagogy.  Strong community and industry partnerships build staff workforce capabilities that result in real world scenarios being embedded in the classroom. Our facilities provide exceptional learning environments and resources.   Our strong business and university links along with our community partners provide a unique range of opportunities and pathways that enriches students' development with real world experiences and connectedness.


We believe in the fundamental right of all individuals (students & all staff) to feel safe in their workplace. Positive relationships between parents, students and teachers are the foundation of a supported learning environment and we are committed to providing positive behaviour management practices.  Clearly articulating these processes enable everyone to identify the boundaries.  This leads to mutually respectful classroom environments, which is conducive to learning. 


We are a school, proud of present and past students. We welcome you to our school community and a culture in which we believe that every student can thrive and excel. Thank you for entrusting Yeppoon State High School with your child’s education.
