Kenmore State High School is a highly regarded school in the Western suburbs of Brisbane. Founded in 1972, the school has grown to an enrolment of 1570 in 2007. The school is located in a very attractive setting on the delightful Moggill Creek. The local community is very supportive of our school and encourages its young people to pursue education as a priority.

Kenmore enjoys an excellent reputation and has outstanding achievements across the academic, cultural, citizenship and sporting areas. We have outstanding staff who have contributed much to the lives of our students over the years. Inspirational teaching and quality learning are cornerstones of our school.

The school is recognised for excellence in the academic arena, with our students scoring very high consistently and often above State and International means. We have a number of signature programs that offer specialist opportunities from our German Immersion program to each of our Arts programs, our laptop program and the Saturday morning GBS sport competition.

The school has a strong direction that is underpinned by five core values. We believe that every student has the ability to learn and expect each person to strive for personal bests. We provide a learning environment that provides multiple opportunities for every student to experience success and to build on this success. This success is vital in a moving and changing world. We want our students to experience learning that is futuristic, enterprising and transferable to the range of situations that will emerge in their lifetimes. I want our students to have a range of options for a quality life because they have maximised every opportunity that this school has offered and see our students graduate as decent citizens with a deep social conscience and a very real commitment to humanity. 

Our great strength is the partnerships we forge between students, staff, parents and the wider community. This partnership enables us to remain at the leading edge and to live out our values and our commitment to the provision of a world class education for every student, as out motto says, an education for life.
