Why choose our school?

Sunnybank State High School prides itself on the strong successes of its students in academic, sporting and cultural spheres. Students are encouraged to achieve their personal best in all facets of their development.

The school values of "respect", "responsibility" and "readiness" are strongly endorsed by the community.  Regular contact is made with parents and students undertake regular academic performance reviews to assist them to achieve their personal goals.

A student leadership program explores the principles of ‘knowing yourself’, "connecting with others" and "making a difference" that are developed in our student leadership programs.  

Our school caters for students from many cultures with a wide range of aspirations and goals.  Extension programs in science, mathematics and track and field promote excellence in each of these areas.
