LAST year's graduating seniors from Mabel Park State High School at Slacks Creek can hang their heads, high after recording the school's best overall OP results.

Three quarters of last year's seniors received an OP score between one and 15.

A further one quarter received an OP score of 16.

In addition, every student received their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).

Mabel Park State High School principal Mike O'Connor praised all of last year's students for their hard work and dedication to their education goals.

"Here at the school we are just so proud of all the hard work they put into their education last year," he said.

"It was great to have 100% of our students receive their school certificate.

"The year before we had 97% so it was good to see we were improving.

"We were also pleased to hear 74% of the graduating class received their first tertiary education preference."

Mr O'Connor also credits the school's ratings to its hard working teachers.

"The scores definitely come down to what was happening in the classrooms," he said.

"The teachers we have here at Mabel Park are fantastic.

"They also deserve a special thankyou for all of their hard work."
