Kilcoy State High School was established in 1963 and its aim is the achievement of its vision for all students to find a ‘Gateway to Success’ through a junior school thrust on engagement and a senior school focus on transition and pathways. The school believes positive relationships with parents allow students to engage in learning and demonstrate a commitment to achieving our vision.
