Tully State High School was opened in 1964 and services the communities along the coast from El Arish in the north to Cardwell in the south.

The school grounds cover 38 hectares, much of which is used by agriculture. There are extensive sporting fields and an environmental plot, with a track system and replanting areas. There is also an arboretum which is a remnant of the original rainforest and has been maintained and developed by staff and students since the school beginning. The school owns a 21 seater bus which is used for student excursions.

The community is predominantly rural (based on sugarcane, bananas and cattle) with associated services and tourism as the other major areas. Unemployment is low. The geographic location (two hours drive to Cairns or Townsville) enforces a marked cultural isolation.
