Shailer Park State High School is a rapidly improving school that seeks to take its place amongst the nation’s best schools.  The rapid improvement is visible in independent measures including NAPLAN results and the Senior School measures of OP scores and QCE and QCIA attainment.  In 2015, our Yr 9 NAPLAN results placed Shailer Park High as one of Logan’s leading schools amongst both government and private schools, with strong growth on all achievement measures.  100% of Shailer Park High’s OP-eligible students received an OP between 1-17, while 87% received an OP from 1-15.  All of Shailer Park High’s graduating students received either a QCE or QCIA.

 

At Shailer Park State High, the focal point of the school is the student.  We know that students require excellent teaching and learning and need to be nurtured in a caring and supportive environment.  We also know that students need to be driven to excellence by unrelenting high expectations. It is these high expectations, combined with our unyielding desire to ensure success for every student, that has led the school to be on its trajectory of sustained improvement. Added to this, our Academy programs in Dance, Volleyball and Football/Futsal, as well as our brilliant Instrumental Music program, produce graduates of the highest calibre in all of these areas.  Each of these areas moulds students as athletes and performers, as well as shaping their character.

 
Our staff are committed to providing the best possible learning experiences through proven teaching methods including Reading-to-Learn and Explicit Direct Instruction.  By understanding the craft of teaching, we aim to ensure each and every student learns to their optimum within our caring structures. Our school works in close partnership with parents and home, knowing that in aligning values between home and school gives students the best platform for success.  Everything we do springs from our values – we are safe, we are respectful, we are responsible. Shailer Park State High School has clear plans to be a leader amongst schools.  A Shailer Park High education is an exciting journey that, with hard work and persistence, will lead to a highly rewarding future.  We will leave no stone unturned in shaping the best education possible for every student.
