School Overview

Kalgoorlie-Boulder Community High School was opened in 2006 and proudly provides a full range of lower secondary courses to students in years 8 to 10 and meets the needs of all students in the community. The school caters for students from a diverse range of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds.

Located 600km's east of Perth, this thriving mining centre caters for more than 650 students from Years 8 to 10. The school is committed to working collaboratively with the community to create an inclusive and innovative environment that motivates and engages students. Being a major regional centre, the city provides comprehensive facilities, services and infrastructure making it a comfortable location in which to live and work. The city is proud of its history and heritage which caters for a significant number of tourists.

To provide comprehensive programs for all students, Kalgoorlie-Boulder Community High School is separated into three learning communities. The learning community structure provides students with a smaller, more cohesive learning environment with a discrete team of teachers. This enables better pastoral care and monitoring of students. Provision for Year 10 students in two teams ensures that the learning experience is a foundation year for post-compulsory studies with a focus on education and training pathways.

In addition to the main learning areas, the school offers a diverse range of subjects and programs catering for students with a variety of interests and needs.
