We are enormously proud of our past and we are determined to continue to provide quality education into the future, striving for excellence.

Located on the edge of the great dividing range seventeen kilometres north of Toowoomba, Highfields State School is a large school of around 780 students from prep to year 6. But more, it is a vibrant learning community, where a high standard of academic, arts, sports and extra-curricular programs are offered. Learning programs are delivered in a flexible, innovative manner. Our experienced and supportive team of teachers, administrators and support staff works tirelessly to achieve the best outcomes for all students. And with a friendly, energetic community that values and supports day-to-day school happenings, our school is at the heart of its community.
