Narrogin Senior High School is situated in the heart of Western Australia's richest agricultural area.
The Town of Narrogin is a major service and educational centre about two hours drive (193 km) from Perth. The hinterland is a farming area, with grain and wool production the major primary activities.
The imposing two storey structure of the school has pride of place in the town and has been built on the highest point in the district. On one side are extensive views over the town and on the other the clean, wide-open spaces of the farmlands
Narrogin Senior High School draws students from Boddington to the west, Wickepin to the east, Pingelly to the north and Wagin to the south.
As the only Senior High School for 100 kms in all directions, Narrogin Senior High School is a genuine comprehensive educational institution. It has a strong academic focus reflecting the aspirations and desires of its contributory community; an outstanding sporting record, as evidenced by on-going success at Country Week and other sporting carnivals; and a long standing commitment to music, as demonstrated by two high quality concert bands.
Its upper school offers academically demanding courses such as Literature and Calculus; vocationally oriented courses such as Business and Office Administration, Accounting and Metals Technology; culturally focused courses such as Music, History and Art; and technologically rich courses such as Aeronautics, Information Technology and Media.
Typically students enrol as twelve year olds into year 8. There is however a significant intake of fifteen year old students into year 11, with many students (nearly 250) choosing to live at the Narrogin Residential College.
