Canobolas Rural Technology High School is a comprehensive high school located in Orange with an enrolment of 654 students, including 45% Aboriginal students. The Family Occupation and Employment Index (FOEI) is 150.

The school has recently undertaken a school development review with a specific focus on school-based initiatives, community engagement, quality teaching and school-wide processes and practices.

The findings, conclusions, recommendations and strategies developed from that process have driven the new Strategic Improvement Plan and provided a clear roadmap of priorities for the school in the coming years.  

The school provides core academic subjects in all stages of learning along with a broad range of elective courses which are proven to engage students positively in their learning.

A strong student wellbeing structure exists within the school and this is managed by a committed Learning and Support Team. The school has nine support classes across multiple classifications with students working towards mainstream and life skills outcomes.  

Staff are working to enhance links with the Western Institute of TAFE and Charles Sturt University, and is supported by industry in the delivery of a range of accredited vocational education and training programs. The school has an emerging transition program with its local primary schools and is keen to further develop productive partnerships with parents and the wider community.
