Narara Valley High School (abbreviated as NVHS) is a government-funded co-educational comprehensive secondary day school, located in Narara, in the Central Coast region of New South Wales, Australia.

The school caters for approximately 762 students in 2022, from year 7 to year 12, of whom eleven percent identified as Indigenous Australians and ten percent were from a language background other than English.[1] The school is operated by the NSW Department of Education; and the current principal is Andrew Skehan.

The school runs several music programs, including a selective creative and performing arts program and a concert band that frequently plays music at fund-raising events for the school and charity. Music classes are mandatory for all students enrolled in years 7 and 8, and the subject may be continued as an elective if a student wishes.[2][3]

Academic acceleration program

The school runs an academic acceleration program for highly engaged students who are invited to join a modified class that aims to complete the HSC a year earlier than the cohort they initially joined with.[4]
