Dysart State High School is a co-educational facility that services the community of Dysart, situated approximately 350 kilometres north west of Rockhampton. It developed from a Secondary Department attached to Dysart State School in 1978 to a fully-fledged high school, which opened in 1982. Our current enrolment is approximately 185 full time students.  These numbers are expected to increase significantly in 2006.  All buildings are low-set with wheel-chair access and the school has specialist Manual Arts, Home Economics, Science and Computing facilities and an extensive library. Classrooms have evaporative air-cooling.

The school has two first-rate computer laboratories and staff are committed to technology across the curriculum. Students have access to the Internet through the Connect-Ed Program.
