Welcome to Mountain Creek State High School

The beach

Located at the heart of the Sunshine Coast, just behind Mooloolaba and just 100km north of Brisbane, Mountain Creek State High School is a modern, innovative school with state of the art facilities. Mooloolaba’s mix of beaches, harbour, parks, shopping and coastal panoramas makes it the ideal place to live and visit. Behind the beaches nestles the Sunshine Coast Hinterland which offers rural views, national parks with rainforest walking trails, and a range of native animals best seen at the world famous Australia Zoo.




Mountain Creek State High School prides itself on our commitment to achieving an international perspective. This enables a diverse, world class curriculum to be offered to our International Students, including the International Baccalaureate Diploma. We also offer the opportunity to study Spanish and Japanese during your stay.students using laptop

In an increasingly globalised community it is important for young people to develop an enhanced understanding of other cultures and nationalities. Our International Student Program excels our value of International Education and allows the opportunity for our International students to gain experience and understanding of the Australian culture, lifestyle and develop their English communication skills.

The success of our International Student Program is evident through the number of students that choose to complete their matriculation with us here at Mountain Creek. Students come to us from all over the world including countries such as Germany, Brazil, Japan, China, Thailand, Estonia, Chile, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, France, Colombia, Mexico and New Caledonia.

A wide variety of subjects to choose from within the curriculum and the opportunity to complete the IBDP make Mountain Creek an attractive place to study.
