As an internationally recognised school with an outstanding reputation, Merrimac State High School delivers world-class education built upon the core principles of respect, responsibility and reliability.
With multiculturalism at the forefront of our ethos, we warmly welcome international students to whom we are proud to offer an enriching local homestay courtesy of our strong engagement with the school community.
Our school motto, ‘Pride in Excellence’, emphasises our unwavering pursuit toward greatness. We believe this is best achieved when students, parents, teachers and community work together as a family to deliver the best possible educational outcomes.
Through our selective entry programs, students are challenged in areas that extend beyond the classroom. This is based on the understanding that fostering student interests and offering opportunities for extension allow students to reach their highest potential.
Owing to our solid relationships with Griffith, Bond and Southern Cross Universities, as well as The University of Queensland, students are provided with flexible pathways to tertiary education, while our industry partners offer a diverse range of traineeships and school-based apprenticeships.
Located in the heart of the Gold Coast and readily accessible via public transport, Merrimac State High School boasts world-class facilities, a highly experienced teaching staff and a supportive school community; an environment where students thrive.
