Harristown State High School is a school with outstanding school spirit, and immense school pride.
Welcome to your school.
Harristown State High School is the largest secondary school in Toowoomba.
Our enrolment exceeds 1,850 students and continues to increase. Our school operates across three distinct campuses. We provide the greatest number and variety of subject offerings for students across Years 7 to 10, and in Years 11 and 12, of any secondary school in Toowoomba, and rank highly in the state of Queensland.
Our school is culturally diverse. Our students originate from 46 different countries; our Year 7 enrolment is drawn from thirty-six primary schools.
Our school is built around clarity. Our explicitly stated expectations of our students, staff and community are captured in the statement – Be Kind, Be Safe, and Be Responsible.
Within those expectations, our school’s resolve is to provide care, compassion, direction and encouragement for all members of our Hawk family.
We then build on this foundation to provide the knowledge, processes, skills and behaviours required for an enhanced future for every one of our students.
Additionally, our school provides an extensive program of extra-curricular activities that are the envy of many schools. These activities extend and add to the richness of life and opportunity that is Harristown State High School. It is perhaps not surprising that we are considered the destination school for education in Toowoomba.
I warmly and enthusiastically invite you and your family to join our family as together we engage and excel, and achieve our school’s vision for Every Student Succeeding.
