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 110 students from Kindergarten to Year 12 from diverse cultural backgrounds and are guided by our ethos: We are Respectful, We are Responsible, We are Achievers.

Within the classroom our core learning is devoted to literacy and numeracy, an integral part of every single day at school. In fact, our school provides many specialist programs to promote literacy and comprehension, such as, Mini-lit, Multi-lit as well as opportunities to attend Challenge (PEAC) 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.

For the past three years we have been in partnership with Good to Great Schools Australia implementing Explicit Instructional teaching strategies in the primary classrooms. This includes annual intensive training for our teachers.

Our School Council is made up of parents, community members and staff. The Council meets at least once a term or when required. 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. Principals and Managers of Corporate Services meet once a term.
