Principal’s welcome



Welcome to Mt Gravatt State High School thank you for your interest in our outstanding school. We look forward to having you as part of our learning community.

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, valuing tradition and the provision of quality teaching and innovation that supports, enriches and extends student's learning. This is reflected in our students' very high standards of work ethic, respectful behaviours and academic performance.

We take pride in our reputation as Mount Gravatt High continues to resonate as a high performing and high expectations school with families, students and staff. Our students consistently demonstrate strong academic performance, outstanding conduct and dedication to learning. In 2022  four students (who shared their data) achieved an ATAR of 99 with 74% of students attaining an ATAR of 77 or more placing them amongst the state’s top performers. 97% of Senior Students achieved a Queensland Certificate of Education QCE with four students achieving 36 QCE Credit Points​

We aim to develop a sense of belonging for all students at Mount Gravatt High through the structure of our Four Pillars - Academic, Cultural, Sport and Community. These pillars provide our students with additional curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities. Students through these additional opportunities develop and gain recognition for their individual strengths helping to create a sense of belonging.

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. Parents often site the sense of community they feel, the citizenship of our students and the feeling of calm they experience when visiting our school as qualities for choosing our school. 

Our students are highly successful in their post school destinations due the high levels of independence and self-reflection they develop throughout their schooling at Mt Gravatt High. This growth is the result the strong foundations set by the school that include high expectations of students with regard to work ethic, achievement, behaviour and uniform standards and the contribution they make to the school community.  

We continually reflect on how our school performs and seek to take the 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 that assists every student to reach their learning potential and post school success.

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.
