Dripstone High School is located in the northern suburbs of Darwin. In 2007 our school offers a middle school program for Years 8 and 9 students.

Dripstone High School is a very traditional school in relation to discipline and welfare. We emphasise what some people may refer to as 'old-fashioned' values. Yet we are proud of these values; consistent and just discipline, a sense of community and belonging and individual responsibility. We believe success can be achieved through the school providing the highest professional standards while working in partnership with parents.

Dripstone High School promotes excellence in all aspects of curricular and extracurricular activities. It is a community of achievers and, though not all of us will be champions, we recognise the importance of participation and achieving personal best. Consequently the school can list impressively high levels of involvement in sporting, cultural and academic events over the last twenty years with considerable success.
