Palmerston High School is the only comprehensive secondary school in Palmerston catering for needs of students from Years 8 to 12. We are located about 25 km south-east of Darwin, Australia. Surrounded by attractive grounds and in close proximity to an Olympic pool, tennis and netball courts, ovals and a leisure centre, Palmerston High School is well resourced and firmly positioned to offer an excellent secondary education for our 750 students.

Over twenty-one years, we have evolved into a one-campus comprehensive school with three strong sub-schools – a Middle School, a Senior School and a Special Education Centre. Each sub-school is distinct its in environment, curriculum and teaching & learning styles, catering for the differing needs of our students at different stages in their lives. At the same time, all of our students have a ‘learning community’ focus and, as a result, they have the opportunity to engage in learning experiences that span the whole school, the community and local industry.
