Welcome to Atherton State School

On behalf of our school community I would like to welcome you to Atherton State School. Our school offers a varied and interesting curriculum within an atmosphere of family support and values. Our school philosophy is based on the beliefs that - we are respectful, we are safe, and we are here to learn.

Atherton State School has a strong academic, sporting, cultural and technological focus that is underpinned by our school motto - Achievement Through Endeavour. This is translated into classroom activities and other learning opportunities where students are encouraged to not necessarily 'be the best' but 'do their best'.

We strongly believe that the greatest academic and social development of your child will occur when we, parents and teachers, work together. You are encouraged to become involved in your child's classroom and also with our school's Parents and Citizens Association.

We are very proud of our school and our students and look forward to working with you and your child.
