Biloela State High School is the only secondary school to serve the community. Students from eight feeder schools (including two non-state schools) attend the high school, with a number travelling from outlying areas by bus. Current enrolment is 571, which has slightly declined over the past few years. Enrolment predictions indicate this trend could reverse slightly in future years.
The school’s Special Education facility services the needs of 22 ascertained students currently, with some projected growth in the area of students with disabilities.
Opened in 1963, the school consists of thirteen blocks connected to an efficient I.T. network. The school is situated on a large site, with a 13.55 hectare farm attached. Current building priorities include an upgrade in existing science facilities, with a new science/pedagogy centre planned for 2006. Ongoing improvements in grounds and sporting facilities remain a priority, with the Parents and Citizens Association actively involved in addressing these needs.
