Aldridge State High School is a co-educational 8 to 12 school located in Boys Avenue Maryborough, (PO Box 3061 Pallas Street). Current enrolments are rapidly increasing (50 students per year), with current enrolment being 982.

We aim for a caring but assertive environment for our students. An environment where the bar for academic and behavioural outcomes is set high, but where there is ample support to help our students reach that height.

Our curriculum, teaching and timetable are built up from an understanding of how students learn. Please read the article on our School Curriculum/Teaching Design towards the end of this report.

Our school is well resourced with attractive highly maintained grounds. Features include a school farm, numerous large shaded areas, a school pool, a very comprehensive computer infrastructure with strong student access and a large multi use Hall.

We believe that academic, vocational and social achievement stem from our motto:  “Success through Effort”
