Our school


Broadbeach State School is an independent public school (2014) situated in the heart of the Gold Coast and across the road from Kurrawa Beach.  Our school was established in 1960. 

Broadbeach State School has a reputation for excellence due to the outstanding outcomes achieved by students in academics, music, art and sport. This academic success is achieved through a strong focus on highly structured english and mathematics programs featuring direct instruction and explicit teaching. Excellence programs established in 2013 in sport, music, Japanese, art and the Academic Academy provide avenues for talented students to reach their full potential.  
Classrooms are digitally rich learning environments and utilise the latest in technology to support and enhance student learning including one-to-two laptop programs in our senior school and ipads in the junior school. 
An extensive range of extra-curricular programs are offered before and after school.
