Murrumburrah High School is situated in Harden on the southern slopes of New South Wales. The school draws its students from the twin towns of Harden and Murrumburrah, as well as from a small number of surrounding rural centres.
The school aims to provide all members of the school community with the best possible opportunities to achieve their personal and educational goals. Vocational education, practical agriculture, student welfare and school-community partnerships continue to be important focuses. Wherever possible, opportunities are provided to extend learning experiences beyond the local environment to broaden student outlook and develop a tolerance of others.
