School Profile

Kalbarri is a small coastal town situated at the mouth of the Murchison River and surrounded by National Park. Kalbarri is a popular tourist and holiday town with a population that varies between 1500 and 10 000 depending on the tourist season. Our community is reliant on tourism and its service industries. Kalbarri is rich in natural,  cultural and oceanic history and the school is ideally situated to take advantage of the natural surroundings and use them in our programs of learning. 

Kalbarri District High School provides a quality learning program for students from Kindergarten to Year 12. Our motto Knowledge and Friendship summarises what our school is about. We strive to achieve excellent academic results for every student and instil in them the necessary values, beliefs and skills to become good citizens. Our school is safe and supportive, fostering a love of learning and excellence.  Being a District High School students are in the unique position of being able to start their education journey in Kindergarten and continue in the same school until the end of Year 12. The size and nature of Kalbarri District High School provides the ideal environment for students to learn in a caring environment. 

Students progressing through secondary schooling can study Senior School ATAR subjects along with some TAFE courses and Traineeships. We offer students the resources to study through SIDE in Year 11 and 12. Students who take this option become very independent learners and well equipped for future higher studies.

Staff are our greatest resource and we are fortunate to be able to continue to offer small class sizes, experienced and dedicated teachers and numerous Education Assistants to enable all students to be treated as individuals. As they reach upper secondary, the curriculum is tailored to meet their personal needs and goals.
