Leonora District High School is situated   within the Education District of the Goldfields. The   present population of the town is approximately 1500. Employment is mainly in mining, local business   and to a lesser degree in public authorities and in the   pastoral industry.
Leonora is on the edge of the Central Desert region;   featuring hot summers, cool winters and a very low   rainfall average of about 233 mm per year. 


The school currently caters for students from K to 12 and has a modified program for year 11 and 12 students, with a combination of school delivered and SIDE options available. Other educational facilities in Leonora include a playgroup, a day care centre, a newly constructed medical and health centre, a hospital with full time doctor, an airport serviced by Skippers Aviation, swimming pool and recreation centre with gymnasium and a telecentre. 
Our school motto 'We Care, We Succeed', is about 'whole of child' education and how we treat people and our expectations. Our learning and teaching programs at Leonora DHS endeavour to treat people honestly, consistently, fairly and openly.

We encourage people to be creative and use their initiative and to work towards a high level of competence and responsibility.
