Welcome to Nuriootpa High School
Nuriootpa High School was established in 1935 and is a public high school with a student population of over 1150 students (years 8 to 12). We are located in Nuriootpa, a township within the Barossa Valley region in the state of South Australia. The Barossa Valley is one of Australia's most significant wine regions.
The school services the broad Barossa Valley region from towns such as Dutton and Truro in the north, Moculta, Keyneton and Eden Valley in the east, Rosedale and Greenock in the west, Nuriootpa, Angaston and Tanunda in the centre and Lyndoch and Cockatoo Valley in the south.
The school has a long history of successful achievement in all areas of learning and in a range of extra curricular activities including sports, music, drama and agriculture. A strength of the school is the breadth and depth of its curriculum and the availability of a wide range of extra curricular activities that cater for the interests and needs of students.
Our motto is PER ASPERA AD ASTRA - Through Adversity to the Stars.
