Duncraig Senior High School is situated in the western suburbs on the coastal strip some eighteen (18) kilometres from Perth and two (2) kilometres from the Indian Ocean foreshore. It is a conventional secondary school catering for over one thousand students from the suburb of Duncraig and surrounding areas. The school's geographical position is advantageous in terms of accessibility and also the cooling influence of sea breezes in the warmer summer months.

The current student enrolment is 1020 including students from Years 8 to 12. With a comparatively large upper school student population the school is able to offer a wide variety of courses for senior students, who are then able to go on to University, Technical and Further Education (TAFE) or employment.

Duncraig Senior High School is a sought-after school amongst teachers and as a consequence there is an experienced and highly committed teaching body at Duncraig. In addition to the Principal and two Deputy Principals there are eleven Heads of Department responsible for the management of the various curriculum areas in the school.
