Taroom P-10 State School is part of the Miles Cluster of schools within the Darling Downs South West Region of Education Queensland.
Taroom P-10 State School has been educating local students for over 140 years, opening its doors for the very first time in 1871. With our school evolving over decades of operation, we have had the pleasure of sharing our educational journey, and working closely with generations of students and families.
We are committed to ensuring that every student, every day, has access to a safe, respectful and student focused learning environment, that proactively promotes high quality teaching and learning experiences for all students.
Our students predominantly come from rural backgrounds, with agriculture and farming being the main industry. Our school prides itself on preparing young adults for senior secondary schooling and beyond. We maintain a strong focus on learning, respect and safety, with our over-arching philosophy being ‘Joining together – Reaching excellence’.
Taroom P-10 State School is committed to ensuring quality pathways for students through vocational education and training options, maintaining strong partnerships with Southern Queensland Institute of TAFE, Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy
(QMEA) and the University of Central Queensland.
