Ravensthorpe District High School (4098)

School Overview

Ravensthorpe DHS was established in 1901 and has strong partnerships with the local community. We offer students from Kindergarten to Year 10 all that you would expect in a larger metropolitan school, yet have that unique, friendly atmosphere typical of a small rural community.

Our vision is to empower and inspire our students to become life-long learners through inclusivity and high-quality teaching and learning. To nurture our student well-being, build resilience and achieve success through real life experiences and community collaboration. At Ravensthorpe DHS, we value our three core positive behaviour expectations of care, ambition and respect and communicate high expectations of our teaching, support, students and community.

At Ravensthorpe District High School, we aim to make our school the heart of our community. We have strong representation and relationships with our community partners that are integral to the success of both our students and community, and we want these to continue to foster and grow.

Ravensthorpe enjoys a temperate Mediterranean climate with beautiful sunny winter days and cool summer nights. Ancient mountain ranges, rocky hills, rugged river valleys, vast sand plains, estuaries and large inlets provide the area with a wealth of natural beauty to explore. Located near Fitzgerald River National Park this provides some spectacular recreational opportunities within its varied landscapes including bushwalking, camping, fishing, canoeing, whale watching, swimming, and surfing.
