Welcome to Thuringowa State High School

Thuringowa State High School opened in 1987, and in 2017 will celebrate 30 years of academic excellence, sporting and cultural achievement and a vibrant community spirit.
 
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.
 
Our values of 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, reponsibility, safety and community that unite us and guide our behaviours and actions.
 
In 2016, a unique and innovative collaboration between James Cook Univeristy and Thuringowa State High School commenced.  Global Tropic Future (GTF) will result in enriched learning outcomes, aspirations and pathways for our students.  Our Global Tropics Future Young Scholars have the opportunities to engage in  innovative experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEMS).
 
2017 will see Thuringowa State High School pilot a new elective STEM program.  It will be available for all students in Year 7, 8 & 9.  This STEM elective is designed to extend students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.  It will challenge and excite students with the possibilities of the future.  It involves 21st century learning opportunities and emphasises inquiry based learning where our students are encouraged to learn by doing.  Students will have exciting opportunities to work with STEM experts at James Cook University, dynamic face-to-face workshops and inspiring STEM challenges.

Congratulations to Samantha Taylor who obtained an OP1 and was our 2015 Senior Dux. 

 
Samantha was awarded during the 2015 Graduation and Awards Night ceremony the Subject Award for Business Communication and Technology, Chemistry, English and Mathematics B.
 
We wish Samantha every success in her future pathway.
 
We are very proud of all our graduating Year 12 students and know they are ready for their next journey upon graduating from Thuringowa State High School.
