Welcome to Thuringowa State High School


Thuringowa State High School opened in 1987, and celebrated 30 years of academic excellence, sporting and cultural achievement and a vibrant community spirit in 2017.

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 four 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.
In 2016, a unique and innovative collaboration between James Cook University and Thuringowa State High School commenced.  Global Tropic Future (GTF) results 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 (STEM).
Thuringowa State High School piloted a new elective STEM program in 2017 which will continue in 2018.  It is available for all students in Year 7, 8 & 9. 
This STEM elective is designed to extend students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.  It challenges and excites students with the possibilities of the future.  It involves 21st century learning opportunities and emphasises inquiry based learning. 

Students have exciting opportunities working with STEM experts at James Cook University, dynamic face-to-face workshops and inspiring STEM challenges.
Further information on the Global Tropics Future Project is available on their GTF website.
