Chinchilla State High School seeks to foster the intellectual growth of students, develop their self esteem and promote the personal qualities of responsibility and cooperation.  We approach this task in a variety of ways.

We offer a broad range of curriculum choices within a supportive learning environment that recognises and cares for individual students and groups of students.

We have a pastoral care system where students belong to groups small enough to provide a strong sense of continuity and identity.

We provide all students with access to a comprehensive range of studies. Students in junior classes have access to a broad program that is carefully structured to provide breadth of study together with the opportunity to be extended and challenged. Our senior students have the flexibility to undertake study through a variety of options; in QSA subjects, school-based traineeships and apprenticeships, AQTF trade qualifications, virtual schooling and distance education. Our focus on achievement and success enables students to proceed to a variety of post school options.
