Mountain Creek State High School is the largest and most popular school on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. Located in the suburb of Mooloolaba, 100 kilometres north of Brisbane, Mountain Creek has grown from an enrolment of 360 in its foundation year in 1995 to 2050 students in 2006.
In 2000 the school was recognised as one of Queensland's most progressive and innovative as a winner of Education Queensland's Showcase For Excellence Award . The school is organised around four Sub-Schools that are designed to break down the large size of the school. Consequently, each academic cohort of about 275 students in the middle school is taught by the same group of about 25 teachers. The school is therefore able to offer all the benefits of a large school (broad range of subject choice and co-curricular activities) while enjoying the advantages of a small school (close personal relationships between teachers and students).
The school's major objective in the next twelve months is to bring a greater international focus to its curriculum and operations. In an increasingly globalised community it is important for young people to develop an enhanced understanding of other cultures and races.
Our state of the art facilities, sophisticated ICT network, willingness to embrace innovation and change, and, above all, highly educated and dedicated staff, are what provides the essential difference at Mountain Creek High.
