Coomandook Area School is located 140kms East of Adelaide, adjacent to the main Adelaide to Melbourne Highway, on the outskirts of a small rural township. Coomandook School is not situated in a large town but rather it forms a focal point for the surrounding rural communities with such facilities as the Community Library. The area served by the school is very closely tied to the rural (Pastoral) occupations.

Students are organised into smaller Pastoral Care groups for daily routines and support.A Pastoral Care program runs weekly with a focus on team building and interpersonal development using Program Acheive. A Middle School structure has been implemented since 1998 to provide support for students in Years 6-9. Support programmes augment this for individuals and groups designated by the student counsellors with the assistance of the Murraylands behaviour management team.
