Principal's Welcome

​It is a pleasure to welcome you to our wonderful school. Our school has great pride in our strong school values, our high expectations, and our drive towards academic excellence.

As the school principal who also lives in the Springfield area and has my three children also attending my school, I know that our school and community is safe, is supportive and strives to ensure our students reach their potential.

International students at Springfield Central State High School are very important to us and do receive that extra care and attention they deserve. Our family values at school and with our homestay families are our strength. Each international student is individually mentored to ensure their grades, their study and their next pathway is successful.

Our broad study options and growing university partnerships also place our students well for their future.

I look forward to being a part of you and your child’s future schooling.
