Welcome to Queanbeyan High School
Queanbeyan High School is a comprehensive high school serving its local community and the communities of Bungendore and Captains Flat. Our mission statement is to encourage the development in students of an individual responsibility for pursuing their education with particular reference to the development of academic achievement. Student responsibility and academic achievement are central to the management of Queanbeyan High School.
Queanbeyan High School seeks to ensure students attain their potential by emphasising the need to achieve their personal best. The school has developed programs to support students in their academic, sporting and cultural pursuits. A well developed and constantly evolving series of welfare programs helps to support students and is a feature of the school's culture.
A number of innovative programs run including The Personal Best program in which students select to be in these classes if they wish to be challenged and encouraged in their learning. The College Program in which Year 11 and 12 sit for three subjects each year and sit for the Higher School Certificate. Over two years students complete 6 subjects but this method reduces to the stress, enables more subjects to run and gives both years of senior study purpose and dignity. Another program introduced in 2010 is the Quick Track program in which students who do not choose Personal Best are given personal, academic and aptitude skills so that they can achieve in the Personal Best classes.
Regional based support classes develop the skills of students with learning disabilities.
