Dowerin District High School supports a farming community and its related services. The town of Dowerin is situated 165 km north east of Perth in the heart of the Western Wheatbelt region. Dowerin is an extremely enterprising and progressive community, as is evident from the Annual Dowerin Field Days. This premier event is renowned as a great showcase for those involved in all facets of agribusiness.

Dowerin District High School is a well-established and resourced school that offers our students a comprehensive education from K-10. The school prides itself on high standards in behaviour, recreational pursuits and its ability to provide each student with the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for life long learning. Typically, the population enables the provision of small class sizes, a caring and supportive environment and yet is large enough to offer a diverse range of educational opportunities.

Our school motto is 'Together We Strive' and we aim to provide an environment in which all students have the opportunity to develop their full potential so that they can be positive and effective members of society in a constantly changing world.
