What makes us unique

Established 1908

For tomorrow's achievers and visionaries

In 1908, a pioneering group of local students stepped through our gates for the very first time to discover a place of inspiration, camaraderie, education and vision.

More than a century has passed since those first enquiring minds entered our classrooms, but to this day, Mount Barker High School continues its unwavering commitment to providing every student with the opportunity to learn, thrive, grow and be happy, in a friendly and enriching environment.

For that’s what makes us unique.
