In 2019,

At Heights we believe all students can succeed. We want the best academic outcomes possible for every student whether they are going to be a beautician, a mechanic or a brain surgeon. Although we are a non-selective, low-fee, regional school we have achieved excellent results recently. These include:

  • Double the state average of OP1s for three of the last four years. 
  • The highest percentage of OP1s of any school in the region for three out of the last four years.
  • For three years in a row, named by ACARA as in the top 4% of Australian schools for NAPLAN improvement from Years 3 to 5 and Years 7 to 9. 
  • In the Qld Government School Leavers report we consistently send more students to University than other CQ schools, we have significantly more students employed than other CQ and Qld schools and a much lower proportion of students unemeployed.  




Heights College is delighted to show that Rockhampton students can match it with the very best in the state. Their 2017 Dux and Runner Up Dux both received the highest ATAR score possible of 99.95, placing them in the top 31 students in Queensland out of over 50,000 Year 12 students and in the top 5% of all the students who received an OP 1.

Lize Nortje and Samuel Lawson are now studying Medicine in Townsville at James Cook University and are just settling in to their new campus and study schedules.

With the new Queensland Senior Schooling system, all Queensland schools will move from OP scores to ATAR scores in 2020. Currently students receive an OP score and can request their ATAR score.
