Rockhampton State High School is a Co-Educational, State School offering five year levels from Year 8 to Year 12. The school was opened in 1919 and moved to its present site near the Rockhampton Showgrounds in 1960. It is the oldest of the three state secondary schools in the provincial city of Rockhampton.
As the school is the only state secondary facility on the southern side of the city, it draws its student population from families of diverse economic and vocational backgrounds. The diversity includes nearby Gracemere which has seen urban development along with semi-rural properties and small farming communities extending to Gogango in the west and to Bajool and Marmor in the south. Over 600 students rely on bus transport.
Approximately twelve per cent of our students are Indigenous and the local clan is the Darumbal people. The school has strong partnerships with the local Indigenous organisations.
Rockhampton State High connects with the primary schools on the southern side of town and in recent times, Southside Links was formed to represent the connections we have. These schools include: The Hall, Marmor, Allenstown, Crescent Lagoon, Bajool, Gracemere and Waraburra.
