Welcome to William Ross State High School.
Our school is an innovative academic school with an extensive range of curriculum providing high quality learning with a strong student support program.
William Ross delivers opportunities for international students to experience success and achieve productive outcomes across academic studies, cultural events and sporting activities.
Located on the south side of Townsville, our open North Queensland life-style offers students experiences and activities that extend their understanding of Australian culture and provide a unique life balance that will add to their personal development as global citizens.
William Ross State High School is located in the tropical city of Townsville: gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Our world-class facilities include an aquaculture hub, industrial trade centre, a laser equipped design lab and commercial grade kitchens with a fully functioning café. We value academic excellence and vocational pathways.
Our school motto is 'Success through commitment' and we offer a diverse range of learning opportunities in a supportive welcoming environment with opportunities in the classroom and beyond. Field excursions include camps to local tropical islands and across North Queensland, with experiences of snorkelling with turtles, discovering Indigenous culture, and other events such as the Human Powered Vehicle competition.
Homestay* enables EQI students to truly experience Australia's famous lifestyle.
By living with an Australian host family international students become part of the local community and have a fantastic opportunity to practise their English in a safe and caring home environment. International students often develop lasting friendships with their homestay families.
Standard Homestay fees have been set and these are listed on the EQI program fees page.

* Students enrolled in Primary School must live with a parent or close relative as defined by the Australian Immigration Regulations.
EQI holiday adventure programs are an exciting and safe way for international students to travel and sightsee during school holidays.
There's an adventure to suit every taste - from visiting city landmarks and riding camels on an unforgettable Australian outback adventure, to exploring ancient rainforests and swimming with turtles off Queensland's pristine white sand beaches.
All holiday adventures are fully guided and escorted by qualified Queensland Government teachers and staff to ensure student safety. These programs are open to international students enrolled in an EQI high school and additional fees apply. Find out more about our holiday adventure programs.
