Chatham High School is a welcoming large comprehensive school that services the town of Taree and adjacent rural and coastal areas. The school community aims to meet the needs of all students and provide education in a safe and friendly learning environment.

Experienced, dedicated staff, noted for their caring attitude to all students, and a strong welfare structure underpin all programs. A broad school curriculum, as well as diverse cultural and sporting pursuits, are provided for all students. An alternative timetable for senior students increases access to Technical And Further Education (TAFE) and vocational courses.

Excellent facilities, physical and technological, provide an environment where students have easy access to learning. In 2000 the school continued on the Disadvantaged Schools Program (DSP) with funding allocated to support the development of literacy skills for all students. In 2001 the school will lose this funding. A Support Unit of six classes provides a comprehensive range of educational services for students with intellectual disabilities.
