Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics and Technology (QASMT) is located in Brisbane's inner west, and is a Queensland state school for highly capable students in Years 7 to 12. QASMT inspires high achieving students through exclusively offering the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) and Diploma Programme (IB DP).

In conjunction with the University of Queensland and other leading universities, QASMT offers an enriched program to enhance the development of students with an interest and ability in the STEM fields of Science, Mathematics and Technology.

QASMT students achieve outstanding academic results and have a proven record in attaining offers to some of the world’s most prestigious universities. In 2018, 2019 and 2020, QASMT was named Queensland’s Top Performing School (https://www.bettereducation.com.au/Results/QCE_ATAR.aspx),">www.bettereducation.com.au/Results/QCE_ATAR.aspx),">https://www.bettereducation.com.au/Results/QCE_ATAR.aspx), and has the largest cohort graduating with an IB Diploma in Australia. The QASMT average IB score for 2020 was 35.31, with over 93% of graduates exceeding the world average Diploma score (29.59). In comparison with other Australian curricula, this means that 31.1% of the graduating cohort received the highest attainable QSR/ATAR 99+ or OP1 equivalent, versus 2.7% (Queensland average).

Underpinning our academic success is an outstanding pastoral care system which ensures every student feels a part of the QASMT 'family'. Student welfare is implemented through our bespoke positive education program and House structure, which ensures every student is known by a significant adult, their House Dean. We believe in the importance of guiding students to become responsible and caring individuals, who are sensitive, open-minded and respectful of all cultures. QASMT aims to develop tomorrow's leaders; individuals who are internationally minded world citizens.

We develop students' abilities to research, investigate and reflect on local and global matters. The relationship between the students and teachers is based on intellectual challenge and interdependent inquiry.

Our campus and facilities are world standard. Our state-of-the-art STEM and Languages Precincts opened in 2020, and provide dynamic use and enhancement of our learning environments. A central hub of the Academy, our Research Centre, provides innovative learning spaces, such as the Robotics and Digital laboratories and 3D printing Makerspace, quiet individual study nooks and collaborative learning areas with up to date e-resources.

Students enjoy the benefits of working in wireless learning spaces with computer network access from all work and recreation areas. In addition, we have virtual classrooms, an observatory, and extensive recreational and sporting facilities. Students also enjoy the contemporary university style lecture theatre and large auditorium, plus well equipped music and art rooms.
