About our school

Welcome to Yass High School. We are an inclusive, comprehensive and growing high school in a rural community close to the national capital. We have a proud record of providing an extensive range of academic, cultural, creative and performing arts, sporting, agricultural and technological opportunities for local students for over 50 years.

Highly qualified and passionate teachers maintain professional currency with best practice teaching strategies and resources to deliver a quality education to our students. Students benefit from a Trade Skills Training Centre, a modern Science/STEM facility, open-plan learning environments and strong ties with the community. A new multi-purpose Hall will be completed in 2022 to provide a facility that will meet our sporting and Entertainment course needs and provide a venue that will host events to connect the whole Yass community.

The school values are Respect, Responsibility, Honesty. These values have been agreed upon by students, parents and staff and form the basis for student wellbeing, backed by strong welfare and support structures and a culture of caring. Our Learning Support Team ensures individual students receive any required learning adjustments necessary to achieve success.

Yass High School is a member of two learning communities ensuring staff are well equipped for teaching and learning across the Kindergarten to Year 12 continuum. The Binit Binit learning community consists of 6 partner primary schools and is committed to providing the best possible education for all students with a focus on middle school and gifted and talented programs, creative and performing arts opportunities and Aboriginal education. The Southern Tablelands Community of schools focuses on HSC excellence, sharing resources, and providing quality professional learning for staff.

Our school is supported by a strong P&C team which operates the uniform shop.Students demonstrate their pride in their school by wearing the school uniform appropriately. We promote a culture of high expectations of behaviour, learning and contribution to community.

We welcome you to Yass High School and look forward to developing our learning partnership with you as your child progresses through the secondary years of education.
