Why choose our school?

Mount Alford State School has heard and read many kind affirmations and fond memories from various members of the school community, past and present. At Mount Alford State School, we create a warm environment for all students who enrol at our school. We also encourage all parents to be active members of the school community, one that is often regarded as an exceptionally welcoming group of people. 

At Mount Alford State School, we cater to the whole child. Students are encouraged to join extra-curricular activities, attend annual school camps, and represent the school in other academic events such as public speaking and leadership workshops. Students are further supported in participation with regional and state sport and recreational clubs. 

Mount Alford State School is a leader in education and the best choice in schooling for your child. Our recent Teaching and Learning Audit results reflect our ambition to be educational leaders in Queensland.  You can access a copy of our Teaching and Learning Audit results overview here.

"Mount Alford is a wonderful school to work at. Small schools have a definite advantage over their bigger school cousins. Everybody knows each othe​​r and students develop a natural buddy and mentoring system.  The school is more like one big, happy family where parents play an important role."
Kathleen Morris, Supply Teacher
"I would like to thank you for the wonderful job you are doing.  I've never seen so many happy kids at that school. Keep up the good work!"
Wendy Nykvist, Parent
"As a past staff member of this school, I held my head high when I told members of the community which school I worked at. After moving to the local area at the beginning of 2012, I was warmly embraced by the parents and locals of Mount Alford State School. I saw myself staying at Mount Alford State School for many, many years, and immersing myself in all that the Mount Alford community had to offer."
 Krystie Smoothy, Past 5/6 Teacher
