Le Fevre High School is a public secondary school situated in Semaphore South, a suburb located 14km to the north-west of Adelaide, South Australia. It was founded in 1910, and served as a boys-only technical school. Much more recently it was converted to a co-ed school. In 2001, it had approximately 700 students, having doubled its size since 1998. This growth is generally attributed to the initiatives taken with regards to the school's curriculum; Le Fevre was nominated to be one of several "Discovery Schools" around the state and thusly received extra Information Technology funding. The only other public school in the state to receive this attention was Unley High School.

Le Fevre takes its name from its location on the Le Fevre Peninsula, bordered on either side by the Port River and the western coastline. Its colours represent those of the local SANFL and AFL teams, the Port Adelaide Magpies (black and white) and Port Power (black, white and teal). These colours feature on the school uniform and logo - the latter being a simplified boat anchor. The closest high school to Le Fevre is Taperoo High School, another public high school located nearer to the tip of the peninsula..

Le Fevre High School teaches students from year 8-13 (South Australian standard secondary education, and adult re-entry education). The web site is available at http://www.lefevrehs.sa.edu.au/.
