Welcome to Bracken Ridge State High School

Our school is very proud of its reputation as an innovative school, which achieves quality academic results for students in a positive, caring and respectful environment where a high standard of work ethic and expectations are core requirements and evidenced through the daily actions.

Our focus is on understanding each student and developing their potential. We have a multitude of innovative and award-winning programs which assist in achieving this goal. The aspects to our school that make it the special place it is are that we have:

  • A community focus based on strong and positive interpersonal relationships between students and between students and staff

  • A committed, caring and passionate staff who constantly seek to improve the quality of their teaching.

  • A committed, active & valued Parents and Citizens Association.

  • A medium sized school where we have built a genuine sense of belonging and pride shared by all.

  • Strong partnerships within our school community and across industry and tertiary education and training sectors.

  • Operations that are underpinned by traditional values and discipline based on our ‘5 Cs’:

    • Commitment

    • Cooperation

    • Courtesy

    • Consideration

    • Common sense

Our school is large enough to provide authentic study options for each student to support their future aspirations, but small enough to know and care for the individual child.

We recognise and promote the concept that an education which enables quality outcomes for students is a partnership involving students, parents, teachers and the community. We welcome to our school all who share our philosophy.

I invite you to navigate our website, which we are currently updating and adding information to regularly and where we aim to bring you current information about our school and to showcase our collective achievements and those of our individual students.
