Welcome to Mount Gravatt State High School I invite you to explore our school via our website. Beyond that, it would be our pleasure to welcome you to Mount Gravatt High to learn more, first hand, about our commitment to the education of our students.

Since its opening in 1960, Mount Gravatt High has developed an excellent record of academic, cultural, sporting and community achievements. Our school has experienced strong and consistent enrolment growth, built upon Mount Gravatt High School’s ethos of learning in a disciplined, safe and happy environment, traditional values, quality teaching and innovation that supports, enriches and extends student’s learning. This is reflected in our students' very high standards of work ethic and respectful behaviours.

We take pride in our reputation as Mount Gravatt High continues to resonate as a high performing, high expectations school with families, students and staff. Our students consistently demonstrate strong academic performance, outstanding conduct and dedication to learning. In 2019, 1 in 4 Year 12 students received an OP 5 or less and 100% of students obtained a QCE.

Learning at Mount Gravatt High is paramount and structured under Four Pillars - Academic, Cultural, Sport and Community, which provides our students with additional curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities. Our Four Pillars create a sense of belonging and enables students to develop and be recognised for their individual strengths.

We are a school that strongly values student learning progression, high standards of dress and behaviour, disruption free learning environments, being socially just and recognition of achievement.  Community service and citizenship are qualities often cited by parents/carers for choosing our school. 

Our students are highly successful in their post school destinations, which is the result of the school’s high expectations of students with regard to work ethic, achievement, behaviour and uniform standards.

We continually reflect on how our school performs and seek to take learning and achievement of every child from “good to great” to “better”. School Opinion Surveys of parents, students and staff consistently return results above like schools and State comparisons. This is due to quality teaching and assisting every student reach their learning goals to post school success, which is paramount.

We feel sure that you will enjoy your time at Mount Gravatt High School and appreciate our positive school culture as we work collaboratively to ensure every student achieves academically, socially and emotionally.
