Marrickville High School is a small inner Sydney co-educational high school supporting comprehensive education for a predominantly local community from diverse non-English speaking backgrounds. 

The school's ethos is built on a strong multicultural tradition that values tolerance of diversity and inclusivity. The students benefit from an excellent student welfare program that supports and rewards individual and team achievement. 

The junior curriculum develops basic literacy and numeracy skills and integrates computer technology across the curriculum. Senior students have a full range of subjects to choose from including four VET courses and produce excellent results in a setting based on small class numbers and individual attention.

The school enjoys excellent facilities especially in Information and Communication Technology(ICT) and on this basis will become the e-learning centre of the inner west.The grounds are extensive allowing the students to pursue a full range of sports.In addition, the school includes two special purpose units: a support unit for students with intellectual disabilities and Wilkins Intensive English Centre (IEC) providing specialist English language development for recently arrived non-English speaking students immediately prior to their enrolment at local high schools. Next year the school will open an After Hours Centre to further enhance student curriculum and community access through specialist tuition programs.
