Tom Price Senior High School serves the towns of Tom Price, Paraburdoo and the Bellary and Wakathuni Aboriginal communities. There are three contributing primary schools, Tom Price Primary School, North Tom Price Primary School and Paraburdoo Primary School.

Students travel the 80 km from Paraburdoo in two modern air-conditioned buses to complement the student population of approximately 200 students.
Opened in 1971 as a District High School with 700 students from Year 1 - Year 10 the school has undergone numerous changes in response to community needs. It became a Senior High School in 1995.

The school is located in the centre of Tom Price and has outstanding views of Mt Nameless. Well established gardens provide students and staff with a positive and pleasant learning environment in which to pursue a range of Curriculum Council Accredited courses. In 2004, the Department of Education and Training together with the Shire of Ashburton, constructed a shared community recreation facility. This provides the school with an air-conditioned, international-sized gymnasium and a performing arts space that can seat 250 people. It was opened by the Premier, Geoff Gallop in 2005.
