Wangaratta High School
Our new website
Our new website launched in January 2024 – we hope you like the new format! Certain elements of the site are still under development. The aim of the site is to promote and celebrate our school and provide information to prospective students and families.
Current students, parents and guardians have access to Compass which contains a great deal of specific information about our programs, individual timetables, teacher contacts, absence notifications, camps and excursions and much more.
Wangaratta High School (WHS) was established in 1909. So began a tradition of encouraging and supporting each student to be their best. To help each of them develop intellectually and socially to reach their full potential. And in doing so, give back to their local community.
Wangaratta High School is proud to be the only public secondary school in Wangaratta, and it has a significant focus on supporting students to achieve their own individual pathway programs and attracts students from surrounding areas for its Academic, Arts, Technology and Performing Arts programs. The school has extensive modern teaching facilities, a performing arts centre, a sports centre, sports fields and courts and world-class digital technology throughout. A comprehensive and well-resourced well-being program is in place, and our students and families often report on the level of care provided by staff from all areas of the school – as we see well-being as everyone’s work.
Our dedicated Wellbeing Centre is home to our Wellbeing Coordinator, Counsellors, Mental Health Practitioner and School Nurse. It is a welcoming space for all students.
Our contemporary buildings and grounds are second to none and provide a stimulating learning environment where students are able to maximize their potential.
