In line with our shared vision and values at Coolum State High School, we are committed to delivering quality and excellence in teaching and learning for a 21st century future. Curriculum at Coolum State High School is delivered by expert teachers to provide students with a challenging, rich and diverse range of learning experiences. The curriculum at all year levels of study, aims to engage students actively in the pursuit of academic, vocational, cultural and sporting success.

Marzano’s Art and Science of Teaching, combined with Reading to Learn and Essential Skills for Classroom Management, provide a framework for our teaching practice and professional development. This ensures a contemporary research based approach is informing the choices Heads of Department and teachers make when structuring unit plans, resources and lessons, in order to maximise individual development, improvement and success for all the students in our school.

The guarantee and viable curriculum is designed in response to Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) Syllabuses, the Australian Curriculum ACARA documents and Vocational Educational and Training modules. Assessment is aligned to the teaching and learning processes against explicit criteria and standards documented in ACARA documents, QCAA syllabuses and VET competencies.

Coolum State High School whole school curriculum priorities are literacy and numeracy and the embedding of digital technologies through all curriculum areas to ensure all our students at Coolum State High School graduate with qualifications and skills necessary to be successful in a global community.
