At the end of 2000 Finley High school will have been in existence for forty years. The school has continued the tradition of providing quality secondary education for its students, which was so firmly established by its predecessors the Finley District Rural School (1938-49) and Finley Intermediate High School (1950-60).
Finley High School is unique in that it serves the four district rural communities of Berrigan, Finley, Jerilderie and Tocumwal and has a drawing area which is served by the shires of Berrigan, Conargo and Jerilderie.
The school is a unifying institution for the whole area. Recently the school has adopted the supplementary motto "Teaching, Learning and Achieving in a Safe and Caring Community".
The adoption of this motto, along with "Wisdom is Strength" continues to focus the majority of the school's energy on striving to achieve academic excellence and having each student experience success.
