Maitland High School is the second oldest state high school in NSW with an enrolment of 957 students.

Significant sections of the school community face barriers in fully engaging with education and accruing the inherent benefits of a successful education.

The school’s ICSEA is 929, compared with an SSG average of 935. Our FOEI is 131, which is comparable with SSG FOEI average of 135. The school has produced a 1.9% improvement in student NAPLAN achievement at Above the National Minimum Standard over time, compared with a -1.4% decline by similar schools (SSSG).

Maitland High School's 2018-20 Strategic Plan directions, 'Successful Teachers, Successful Students, Successful School' succinctly captures the school's commitment to continual growth and improvement: positive movement widely acknowledged by our community.
