At Everton Park State High School we aim for every student to achieve their very best in everything they do.

We are a unique school in that we know every student in our school and through this knowledge are able to personalise the educational experience for every student.

We are able to nurture and challenge every student. There are more opportunities for students to get involved in academic, sporting and cultural activities.

The relationship that exists between students and teachers enables students to achieve their very best.

We are a community and encourage students to take pride in and feel a part of this community. The special partnership we share with parents/caregivers is important in building our sense of community. The sense of community we create builds students confidence and maturity. It builds individual resilience students have the opportunity to participate in a broad range of school activities and through this learn that they are capable of amazing things.

Our focus on student leadership is also about building resilience and confidence. A Senior Leader is chosen because they demonstrate that they are prepared to provide example to the rest of the school. In keeping with our philosophy of maximising student participation, all Year 12 students are eligible to apply for Senior Leadership, and all students who reach the benchmark for selection become Senior Leaders. The outcome for the school is real Leadership from Senior Students and a sense of pride and belonging in our school.

Work ethic; high expectations; participation and building positive relationships are features of our school.
