Educating the pride of our community for over half a century.
Situated in the lush tropical highlands of far north Queensland, Atherton State High School is at the heart of our country community. Academic excellence, a supportive community and strong values allow Atherton State High School students to spread their wings. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the Land on which the school is built, the Tableland Yidinji People.
Welcome to our website. Here, you can find information about our school, view our student's successes and find contact information.
Atherton SHS has published a Junior Secondary position paper describing how we structure our school to welcome new students. Parents, students and community members are encouraged to participate in orientation activities to assist with Junior Secondary students successfully transitioning to become part of the Atherton High family.
You may wish to find out more about our innovative virtual campus, The School of Astronomy and Astrophysics. This virtual campus offers gifted students the opportunity to study at university level Maths and Science whilst still completing their high school studies.
We look forward to welcoming you as a member of the Atherton State High School family.
