Wongan Hills District High School is a medium size District High School situated 170 kms north-east of Perth, 100 km east of Moora and 90 km north of Northam. The school caters for a range of students from Kindergarten to Year 10. There are also opportunities for suitable students to study through the School of Isolated and Distant Education (SIDE) and engage in School Based Traineeships for year 11 and 12. Trainees are also supported through the Wongan Hills Community Education Partnership (WHCEP) which provides a one stop facility for students and parents when dealing with this complex area.

The school has an off-site building for the four-year-old Kindergarten children and an on-site building for full-time five-year-old pre-primary group. Five bus routes service Primary and Secondary students living on farms in our catchment area. Wongan Hills District High School has well maintained grounds and play areas. The school underwent a building upgrade (1992/93) with the addition of a new Science laboratory, Home Economics and Pre-Primary centre. During 2003, an exterior refurbishment program was undertaken.

There are specialist rooms for Design and Technology, Art/Craft, Home Economics and Information Technology Laboratory as well as general classrooms. A Library/Resource Centre provides research facilities for the whole school.

The school has excellent Information Technology facilities with a curriculum network that encompasses the school, with the exception of the Pre-primary and Kindergarten centres. The curriculum network is not integrated with the administration network but has the infrastructure for future linkage. All computers on the curriculum network run Windows XP and Office XP. Internet access is readily available and there is a remote service to assist trouble-shooting. The school has a range of printers and access to scanners, digital cameras, audio devices and a multi-media overhead projector.
