Burnside State High School is located in the suburb of Nambour.

The major focus of Burnside is relationships. We place a priority on quality relationships and this emphasis has provided the key ingredient for its outstanding success across all year levels. People work hard at getting on together and because we are a small school it is easier to monitor student progress and provide support.

Burnside is the proud winner of numerous awards and has hosted many international educators on fact finding visits. Our innovative structure, quality curriculum programs and emphasis on values meets the needs of a diverse range of students.
