Canberra High School

Canberra High School is a leader in the secondary education sector. Our learning community encompasses not just the students and staff here but also the parents and wider community. This type of support and community involvement enriches the learning experiences of our students.

We are a long established school and have been operating since 1938. Canberra High School was originally based at the current School of Art at the Australian National University and moved to our current site in Macquarie on 21 August 1969. There have been many changes since 1938 providing a relevant curriculum and contemporary learning environment for students of the 21st century.

We currently have 800 students enrolled in Years 7 to 10 with over 40 different nations represented within our student population giving us a very multicultural school. Traditionally over 65% of our enrolments are students outside of the school s Priority Placement Area which means that students and parents are making Canberra High School their school of choice.
