Welcome to Thuringowa State High School

Thuringowa State High School opened in 1987, and celebrates 32 years of academic excellence, sporting and cultural achievement and a vibrant community spirit in 2019.

Our school prides itself on the benefits that come with students attending a smaller school.

We believe strongly in our young people, and are committed to providing the very best education and support for them.  In the past five years, four of our senior students have achieved an OP1 result.

Our values are: together we learn and achieve and no one gets left behind; our purpose is of engaging and empowering students; creating opportunities; and our values are respect, responsibility, safety and community that unite us and guide our behaviours and actions.

The Global Tropics Future project is an award winning innovative partnership between the Department of Education and James Cook University. 

Thuringowa State High School leads the collaboration designed to boost engagement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) for students across North Queensland.  It enables like-minded students to connect, collaborate and explore their STEM interest and passion through a range of enriching and challenging learning opportunities.

Students in Years 7 to 10 at Thuringowa State High School can study their signature STEM subject called iSTEM.  The curriculum is centred on deep learning and is developed through partnerships with James Cook University and industry to support authenticity, currency and innovation of learning experiences. 

Further information on the Global Tropics Future Project is available on their GTF website.
