Queensland Academy for Science, Mathematics and Technology
About Our Academy
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. Our students are engaged in numerous state, national and international STEM activities each year. QASMT’s commitment to outreach and capacity building in Science and STEM education is evident through a number of programs and partnerships.
QASMT is proud to be a member of the ISSN and has attended ISSF 2015 and 2016. We are currently selecting students and staff to attend ISSF 2017. Please visit our website for further details about Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics and Technology https://qasmt.eq.edu.au/.
