Welcome to the Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics and Technology website. I trust that within these pages, you will discover the essence of our learning environment and its capacity to provide the very best education for your son or daughter.
The Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics and Technology (QASMT) is one of the most successful and prestigious selective entry state high schools in Australia. Our Academy is one of three conceived under the Smart State Agenda, aimed at providing a genuine transition for highly capable students in years 10, 11 and 12 between senior school and university. It is a school whose exceptional academic standards rest easily beside great endeavour and success in a wide range of activities.
We are fortunate to have outstanding teachers who consistently contribute to the lives of our students. Inspirational teaching and quality learning are our cornerstones ensuring that our Academy is ranked as one of Australia's finest schools, consistently achieving outstanding learning outcomes.
Our Academy aims to extend students’ learning by blurring the line between school and university. The curriculum is rigorous and was developed in partnership with The University of Queensland ensuring our students experience a smooth transition to tertiary education. Our core curriculum is the International Baccalaureate Diploma; a program that has earned a reputation for rigorous learning and assessment, enabling IB diploma recipients’ access to the world's leading universities.
As one would expect, our curriculum has a strong emphasis on the sciences and mathematics. Our partnership with The University of Queensland ensures students have access to and use technologies to gain exposure to the cutting-edge of these disciplines in a manner which values academic rigor.
Underpinning our academic success is an outstanding pastoral care system supporting every student and helping each one to feel a vital part of the QASMT ‘family’. Student welfare is implemented through a Mentor Program ensuring all students achieve to their potential. We believe in the importance of guiding students to become responsible and caring individuals, who are sensitive, open minded and respectful of all cultures. QASMT aims to develop tomorrow’s leaders; individuals who will be internationally-minded citizens.
Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent. At QASMT, we understand this responsibility, and that is why we are committed to and passionate about nurturing our students’ academic, social and personal development in a caring and safe community.
Whilst you will find extensive information about QASMT on our website, I encourage you to visit our Academy on Open Days or evenings (or both), in order to fully appreciate the warmth and vibrancy of our learning community, and to discover for yourself how we can best serve the educational needs of your child.
