The people of Mount Isa have a history of finding local solutions to Mount Isa challenges. Spinifex State College - Mount Isa was established in 2003 after community consultation showed that creating a new school would provide the best education service to students in our town.

At Spinifex State College we are committed to achieving quality personal outcomes for all our students. These personal outcomes may be in academic, cultural or social areas.

Our aim is to provide students with an educational experience that will equip them with the skills and personal attributes to:

Advance them on their chosen careers
Enable them to participate in society; and
Contribute to the community in which they live.
To achieve this aim parents and students are encouraged to actively work with the school to achieve excellence. Our best success occurs when we are able to work together.
