Colo High School is situated in the semi-rural Hawkesbury district. The school was designed to cater for multi-educational options and a wide range of educational formats. 

The school environment is attractive, safe, secure and harmonious. Our students are mainly drawn from seven local public schools and two independent schools. 

The school arose out of a need for a high school on the western side of the Hawkesbury River. Statement of School Purpose: The mission of Colo High School; We respect and value ourselves, others, our work and our environment. 

The work of the school is premised on four beliefs:

1. We need to have respect for the rights of others and ourselves; 

2. We have responsibilities that flow from our rights to ourselves, our school community and our society; 

3. We believe in and value education and learning; and 

4. We value a caring environment that is safe and secure.
