Alexandra Hills State High School

Alexandra Hills State High School is located in a southeastern suburb of Brisbane, close to the coast with parks, hiking trails and lots of nature. There are koalas on the school grounds and it is not far to Stradbroke Island, a great island with beautiful beaches and excellent surfing facilities.

Alexandra Hills State High School offers an exceptional variety of subjects, complemented by a rich extracurricular program.

A unique feature is the school’s own Center of Excellence in Automation and Robotics in a new, dedicated building. The aim is to inspire future innovators and leaders in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). It gives students the opportunity to experience a range of future technologies first-hand. Specifically, it involves projects with robotic vehicles and drones, programming video games, websites, apps and virtual reality content, as well as design techniques using computer aided design (CAD) software. For years 11 and 12, it is possible to take the exam for an official drone license.

The Dance Academy is a program for ballet-enthusiastic students of all grades with different skills and experience. Different performance groups each specialize in a particular genre. The Dance Academy has a long history of great success in numerous competitions, where participants not only compete against other schools at different venues, but also have the opportunity to see other performances and interact with students from other schools. For many students, participating in the Dance Academy program is one of the highlights of their time at Alexandra Hills State High School.

Basketball Academy members participate in intra-school basketball competitions, with game times varying by year level. During competitions, students also play against school teams from the surrounding area, with the winner advancing to the Metropolitan Finals. Students may be selected to represent Alexandra Hills State High School in the annual Champion Basketball School of Queensland competition and the Southside Premier League.
