Samford State School opened in 1872 and we celebrate a proud history of connectedness with the close knit community that is nestled within the Samford Valley.
Samford State School is a student centered community that is focused on the development of the whole child.
Through deeply engaging learning experiences our students are supported to become confident lifelong learners who positively impact the world around them.
In 2015 we became an Independent Public School. With greater input from parents, teachers and other community members, we have flexibility to shape our direction and make local decisions to benefit our students. Enhanced autonomy is a key ingredient in our approach to being creative, innovative and able to respond to student learning needs.
