Woodridge State High School opened in January 1972. Enrolments at Woodridge State School continued to rise rapidly in the early 1970s, following an influx of British migrants. In January 1974, enrolments totalled 1,689 students, making it the biggest school in Queensland at the time. Woodridge State High School was founded out of a passion to provide the best possible educational opportunities for students in the Woodridge area. The school is gearing up for its 50th anniversary in 2022 to look back over half a century of memories.
Since that time we have created strong traditions of building partnerships, enabling choice, empowering students, and establishing high expectations within our learning community. Our school boasts a strong multicultural student population reflective of our Logan community, and we are especially proud of the ways in which we celebrate richness and diversity in student backgrounds. Woodridge State High School now educates approximately 1400 students from over 60 cultural backgrounds.
The core business of our school is to ensure students attain successful outcomes. This is achieved through the creation of a high performing, safe and respectful learning environment. Our expert teaching team and community partners are there to provide an engaged, motivated and exciting contemporary learning community. The curriculum and teaching practice target the key areas of Literacy, Numeracy, Science, and Digital Learning and all students are given the opportunity to engage in a meaningful and highly individualised curriculum.
Our school is at the forefront of community leadership, addressing the needs of a multi-layered and diverse community through advocacy, educational, professional and social networks and services. As a school we value the education of students to make informed choices about themselves, their future, and the world around them.
It is the vision of Woodridge State High School to provide a thriving, agile teaching and learning environment, leading our community to be empowered, connected and futures focused.
