Our school

Murgon State High School is on an attractively landscaped property and includes a 42 hectare farm. We support all students in finding an appropriate educational pathway. Success will look different for every student – some will go onto higher education, others to vocational training and some straight into employment.

We foster the belief in the worth of effort and the value of striving towards personal and educational goals for all our students.
