Ravenshoe State School P-12 is located at the southern end of the Atherton Tablelands, a rural community in Far North Queensland. The school comprises a Preschool campus, a Primary campus and a Secondary campus, averaging a total student population of approximately 490 in recent years and an average of 80 staff members. Ravenshoe State School belongs to the Tablelands-Johnstone District within the Far North Queensland Region.

Both the primary and secondary campuses have Special Education facilities. Approximately twenty-three percent of the student body is of indigenous origin. Unemployment in Ravenshoe and Mt Garnet is amongst the highest in Queensland. The secondary campus hosts a commercial dairy. The school is well served by a P&C Association, a School Council, an Indigenous Student Support Group, and the Dairy Farm Management Committee. Other committees and groups exist for Chaplaincy Services, Student Special Needs and Welfare, ICT, Facilities, Behaviour Management, Finance, Curriculum Development, Literacy and Numeracy, Assessment and Reporting, and Communication and Promotions.

Historically, this P-12 school was located at the primary campus, but after the purchase of the St Barnabas Anglican School, the secondary and primary campuses are now located on two geographically distinct sites. With the decline of the dairy and timber industries, the school community has become a very diverse one. Surrounding the Ravenshoe Preschool, Primary and Secondary campuses is the local catholic primary school, St Teresa’s and approximately 40 kilometres west is a small state primary school, Mt Garnet.
