Coombabah State High School

Welcome to all our new families to the wonderful Coombabah State High School community.  In this modern age where data appears to drive everything, there is lack of information around the key aspects of a school beyond its academic outcomes.  The sense of belonging and inclusiveness are difficult to portray in a graph.  These are both aspects that I am proud of the strength that our school community embraces.  It is an area that is commented to me regularly by visitors to our school. 
2017 has seen our continued steady growth.  The extra numbers has enable us to recruit two additional teachers, allowing us to timetable an extra class in Yr 7 bring class numbers down to 24, well below the allowed 28.  I believe this is an important consideration to ensuring that we deliver on our personalised approach to education.
Congratulations to our graduating group of 2016.  Not only did every student graduate with a Queensland Certificate of Education but all of our students applying for University and TAFE where offered positions in courses.  I spoke to our teachers about the amazing perseverance they demonstrated to get every single graduating student to successful complete their high school experience.  Australian research indicates that this will lead to a greater chance of employment and in higher income jobs.
Our school mission statement includes our drive to develop “Future ready students: Value learning new skills to reach their goals.  These young adults work collaboratively, are resilient, respectful and responsible.  They contribute positively, are motivated, independent and prepared for new challenges.
Coombabah State High School certainly is a “Pathway to Success”
