Ferny Grove State High School has developed a strong reputation for the provision of high quality educational opportunities across academic, sporting, cultural and citizenship areas. Our vision is for all of our students to reach their true potential, achieving their individual goals and making a positive contribution to their communities.

With a student population of approximately 1350, our school is large enough to offer significant diversity and something for everyone, while ensuring that every student is valued as an individual who is encouraged and supported to "Always Aim High".

Established in 1980, our School is situated in a beautiful bushland setting, just twelve kilometres from the centre of Brisbane.

Ferny Grove consistently attains academic results that place our students among the best in the nation. Literacy and Numeracy are key planks within all subject studies - a fact that is demonstrated each year, with NAPLAN results above those of like schools, and state and national averages.

Distinctive features of the school include German Immersion, languages and cultures programs, vocational training programs, instrumental and choral music programs, agriculture studies, extension classes in English, Mathematics and Science, High Performance Sports and membership of the Greater Brisbane Sporting competition. These signature programs enhance an outstanding educational provision to meet the needs of a diverse student group.

 ICTs are integrated throughout the learning process. There is approximately one computer for every two students and all teachers are equipped with laptop devices. The school is moving to achieve a ratio of one computer for every student from Years 8 to 12.

Ferny Grove State High School has deployed a campus-wide wireless solution so that students and staff can enjoy a network connection from almost any location in the school. The school is well-resourced with specialist teaching areas, a large open-plan library, gymnasium, sports hall, and a 350-seat tiered auditorium, agricultural farm and sporting fields.

Our highly-qualified staff inspire a life-long love of learning and are characterised by their dedication, professionalism and stong interest in our students.

Ferny Grove State High School enjoys significant community support and actively engages parents as key partners in the achievement of student learning goals.
