The Karratha Senior High School motto 'Towards Tomorrow' embraces the aims of enhancing responsible and caring individuals prepared for success in a changing world.
Karratha Senior High School is a progressive and inclusive high school catering for between 700 and 800 students. A senior high school since 1974, Karratha Senior High School caters for a wide cross section of the community, with students coming from eight contributory primary schools as well as other schools, both state and nation wide.
From within the Karratha town site, the school attracts Year 8 students from all six primary schools: Pegs Creek, Tambrey, Karratha, Millar's Well, Karratha Educational Support Centre and Saint Paul's. Students also come from primary schools in the neighbouring towns of Dampier, Roebourne and Wickham.
Karratha is a major centre in the Pilbara and central to the expansion of industry in the Burrup Peninsula. With long-term projects currently being proposed, population growth is likely to occur. This will also impact on the population of all the schools in Karratha.
