Australind Senior High School was founded in 1987 and graduated its first Year 12 students in 1991. It was officially opened on June 10, 1994. This year, it has over 1,000 students housed in attractive buildings on a rise overlooking the Brunswick River. It is the northernmost secondary school in the greater Bunbury District. The school 'coat of arms' designed by the school's first Art teacher depicts a white egret. The choice of the egret is consistent with the school's locality near the Leschenault Inlet and symbolises the school ethos of conservation and care. With the official opening of the school in June 1994, the school adopted the motto:
'Through Endeavour, Success'

The school buildings are relatively new with the latest of them being completed only recently. The Performing Arts and Visual Arts Centres provide a working environment in which students can both perform and appreciate the Arts. The Music program has received many accolades including recent success in the Queen's Cup. This is a South West Regional Bands Competition involving school and community performances. Three of Australind Senior High School's bands won their divisions and the Senior Concert Band came second in A Grade to the Bunbury City Band. In 2003 the Arts curriculum was further enriched by an Artists in Residence program that complemented the inaugural Arts Festival (MADDFEST) that was officially opened by the Minister of Education on 24 November 2003. 

The school's technology facilities are outstanding. There are over 300 networked student computers. This computer network allows students to fully explore the global environment. In 2003 the school invested significant resources in developing the usability of the network by providing extensive training for all staff and extending access to the network to every staff member. In 2003 the school developed and published its web page, as a part of an ongoing commitment to promote the school and provide an interactive medium for community interaction with the school.
