North Rockhampton State High is a large Band 10 coeducational school situated in the centre of North Rockhampton. Currently, the school has a student population of about 1040 students and eighty two teaching staff. A large Special Education Unit and a link with the Full Service School in the Canning Street annexe provide additional support structures within the school.
The school has an extensive range of curriculum offerings, one of the largest in the Rockhampton district, with growing flexibility for students in the senior phase.
TAFE link courses, school-based traineeships, structured work placements and alternative programs for students all contribute to a diverse and futures-orientated approach to schooling.
Though currently under review, the middle phase of learning is structured so that students entering year 8 complete an orientation semester, followed by two one year courses framed around a Key Learning Area (KLA) approach. The final semester in year 10 links strongly with senior phase offerings.
