Lake Illawarra High School is a high school offering a wide selection of courses. Located on Reddall Parade, which follows the shores of Lake Illawarra, the school is bordered by the suburbs of Mount Warrigal, Warilla and Lake Illawarra. It is in close proximity to Windang and Warilla beaches, Stockland Shellharbour and Warilla Grove shopping centres, Shellharbour TAFE College and Shellharbour Hospital.

The school offers a broad curriculum. In the junior years a special literacy class is available to students with learning difficulties. Extension opportunities are provided for talented students in a range of subject areas. In the senior school traditional academic subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Extension Mathematics and English are offered. In addition vocational courses are offered in Hospitality and Catering, Building and Construction, Furnishings and Metals and Engineering.

The school emphasises the intrinsic worth of art and music as valuable cultural influences in the formation of the cultivated mind. Visual Arts and Graphics students have designed and painted murals and features in strategic parts of the school. Music students have produced a number of CDs.

Many students are selected to represent Lake Illawarra High School in swimming, athletics and cross country carnivals, at zone, regional and state levels. Students are encouraged to enter state knock out competitions in a variety of sports.
