Rotuma High School is the only secondary school on the island of Rotuma, which is 450 km northwest of Fiji. The school is located in the district of Malha‘a within Elsio village.

The school was established in February 1958 as a co-educational institution (for girls and boys). Mr Wilson Inia was its first headmaster. Over the years it has changed its name several times. It started as Rotuma Central School, then became Malha‘a Secondary, after which it was known as Malha‘a Junior Secondary, and finally by its present name of Rotuma High School.

The Council of Rotuma is its controlling authority and it has been registered as a secondary school with a vocational section under the provisions of the Educational Act of the Government of the Republic of Fiji.

The faculty has 25 academic and 5 ancillary staff. The school is multiracial with a student population well over 200. We have Rotumans, I-taukeis, Indo-Fijians, Tuvaluans and others. It is the only school in Fiji to teach Rotuman language and culture explicitly.
