Girraween High School is a selective school where the staff is committed to offering a wide range of educational experiences in order to develop students to their full potential. 

There is a strong emphasis on providing a diverse and challenging curriculum for our students. As the vast majority of our students pursue tertiary studies our curriculum is of necessity academic. 

The curriculum at Girraween High School relates to the processes by which learners acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes. Therefore teaching and learning programs reflect the identification of our students' needs, the prescription and range of learning outcomes, teaching processes and strategies, as well as assessment and evaluation. Academic achievement is stressed. 

At Girraween High School we focus on developing life-long learners by fostering each student's talent and potential. Only when students are happy and secure can meaningful learning take place. Thus we recognise the importance of student welfare and ensure its integration into all aspects of the curriculum. 

We strive to: Foster active learners who can work both independently and collaboratively; encourage critical thinking skills; instil respect and tolerance for others; encourage students to have and fulfil the highest possible expectations of themselves; and develop skills in technology and its application.
