Brisbane State High School is located in the centre of Brisbane, just 500 metres from the Brisbane River and close to South Bank riverside park and Kangaroo Point, cycle paths, cinemas, the Queensland Museum and the Gallery of Modern Art.
The school enjoys an excellent reputation academically, athletically and culturally. Brisbane State High School is a unique learning environment in that students here are given a huge range of options and opportunities in the areas of academics, sports and cultural experiences. The music programme, in particular, is of outstanding quality and the school enjoys demonstrating this in competitions and public performances.
The school participates in a range of prestigious sporting and cultural competitions and competes with elite public schools in south-east Queensland. 48 of the school’s ex-students have become Olympians since the school was founded in 1921. Because of its reputation, enrolments at Brisbane State High School far exceed its capacity.
