The suburb of Mango Hill, north of Brisbane, has welcomed a brand new high school. With local schools already reaching capacity, Mango Hill State High School is a welcome addition to the growing region. The North Lakes and Mango Hill area is one of the fastest growing regions in Queensland, with its population growing by an average of 2,000 people each year since 2006. This rapid population growth is predicted to continue and reach 45,000 people by 2036. With the region’s student numbers increasing as the population grows, the Mango Hill SHS capacity of 1,700 students will take the pressure off other local schools.
Located on Kinsellas Road East, the new high school is built on a 14.1 hectare site. The facility includes a number of one to three storey buildings catering to different sections of the campus, including separate learning areas for Junior and Senior students.
The school includes an administration building, junior general learning areas, central covered lunch area and canteen, as well as dedicated learning centres including information services, sports, and science with junior applied technology and hospitality facilities.
