Mount Magnet District High School (4142)

School Overview



Our vision is to ensure our students develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to achieve their full potential, become lifelong learners and to make positive contributions to society.

From our friendly office staff to the wonderful student artwork dotted around the school - students, staff and visitors alike feel our positivity and warmth.
We have around 88 students from Kindergarten to Year 12 from diverse cultural backgrounds and are guided by our motto: We are Respectful, We are Responsible, We are Achievers.

Literacy and numeracy, are integral part of every single day at school and we strive to provide every student with opportunities to learn the skills they will need for life after school. Zones of Regulation are taught in Primary School, to complement the Positive Behaviour Strategies that the school values and promotes. A number of opportunities are delivered electronically such as the Primary Extension and Challenge Program and the Year 11-12 courses. We have a strong Lego robotic extension class for our Year 2 to Year 12 students.

Our dedicated and skilled staff work hard to build respectful, trusting relationships with our students and families, making our parents partners in their child's education.
Students have a range of opportunities to engage in health-focused activities including the 'Edge of Nowhere'initiative which has generated a garden and includes cooking healthy food. The school offers a Certificate II in Food and Hospitality in partnership with Durack TAFE and works closely with local organisations and agencies who are promoting student well-being and health.

The school and town are located in Badimia Country, with a number of students and staff members closely connected to and continuing language and culture. The school has a Wajarri Language program and along with visual arts, this is important in both the school and community. The School is part of the Murchison Network of schools comprising of Meekatharra District High School, Yulga Jinna Remote Community School, Cue Primary School, Yalgoo Primary School and Pia Wadjarri Remote Community School.
