Our school

Charters Towers Central State School is situated in Charters Towers, just over 1km from the CBD. Established in 1875, today Charters Towers Central State School caters for over 160 students from Prep to Year 7.

Our dedicated and experienced teaching staff take pride in presenting the curriculum in an integrated, innovative and inspiring way with a view to helping students achieve their personal best. A dedicated junior school, including Playgroup and Early Children Development Program, enables us to tailor the learning environment specifically to meet the needs of our younger students.

We are also supported by a terrific community which enables us to offer a range of fun events during the year including Under 8's day, NAIDOC events, Book Week parades, Athletics Carnivals and Graduation Day, just to name a few.

Charters Towers Central State School is a proud School Wide Positive Behaviour Support school (SWPBS).  At Central, children are taught explicit behaviour expectations to ensure students are provided with life long values.  

Our grounds include large undercover areas, a new Hall, multiple playgrounds, a sports oval, gardens and open spaces. Facilities for the school are being continually developed. The classrooms are situated with a central focal point which offers learning flexibility between classes, and are pleasantly located next to lovely gardens. Within the buildings, staff have developed a variety of teaching areas to cater for the needs of every child.

Parents and citizens assist in providing a wide range of resources, by helping in the tuckshop, library, and developing the grounds.
