State High Foundation


​​​​​The State High Foundation was established to ensure sustained excellence in the educational and extra-curricular programs offered by the school. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors of prominent past students working with the school, independent of the Education Department.

The Foundation supplements school funding through tax-deductible philanthropic support from the school community and private sector for projects that enhance opportunities and support for students.
