Principal's Welcome

Urangan State High School is a friendly, happy and busy community where our school vision “Pursuit of excellence every minute, every day” and motto “Working together to learn” is enacted on a day to day basis. Our school operates on a philosophy of setting high standards and expecting students to strive to be the best they can be, in all facets of their lives.

We provide many opportunities, both inside and outside the classroom, for students to develop to their full potential. This is done in an orderly, friendly and supportive environment.

Urangan State High School is dedicated to discovering the best within all students through high quality educational and social experiences that expose them to new ideas, new ways and new possibilities for future success.

We believe in creating a school, which is based upon mutual respect and empowerment, where:

  • Students feel safe and able to achieve to their full potential,
  • Parent involvement is valued,
  • Staff are enthusiastic and supportive, and
  • Teamwork, confidence and communication are the basis of success and happiness.
  • Parents are always welcome in our school, as you play a very important role in our school community and students benefit from you taking an active interest in their high school activities.

    We look forward to meeting you.
