Mirani enjoys an excellent reputation and has outstanding achievements across its many and varied programs. Our staff have contributed much to the lives of our students over many years. Inspirational teaching and quality learning are cornerstones of our school.As the only provider of secondary schooling in the Mirani Shire, we are mindful of the need to provide multiple educational pathways for the young people of the Pioneer Valley.     

Our school is located in Mirani but provides for students from a wide area. The Shire has people from a range of employment backgrounds although sugar cane is the main industry. The Pioneer Valley provides a wonderful backdrop to our school and a terrific environment for learning. Our enrolment is around 630 students which allows our school to deliver a broad curriculum in an environment where everyone can feel part of the school community

Our staff are enthusiastic and able to relate well to young people. They place the interests of students above all else. Positive links have been developed not only within the Mirani shire but also through the broader Mackay community. An education from Mirani High is seen as an asset in the competitive youth job market.
