NSW Police say there is an "ongoing investigation" into allegations at Port Macquarie High School of abuse by male teachers between the 1970s and 1990s.
A spokesperson from NSW Police has declined to comment any further on possible action as a result of the allegations.
The Port News spoke to a number of women who allege they were targeted and groomed by teachers at the school over a 20-year period.
The women said the abuse had a devastating impact on their life.
A Facebook group called Teacher's Pet Released was started in relation to Port Macquarie High School and allegations around teacher-student relations. Up to 42 women have made contact with the page's administrator to share their stories.
The Port News was told a complaint was made to the Department of Education in 1980 by two parents about an alleged perpetrator.
Nancy Haglund, whose daughter was in her final year at Port Macquarie High School, was one of two parents who made a complaint about one of the perpetrators.
A meeting was arranged and she met with two representatives of the NSW Education Department.
Ms Haglund said she was outraged by the inaction and the implication that the complaint would ruin the teacher's career.

The women have sought local legal representatives to work in association with Brisbane law firm Kerin Lawyers on potential legal action.
Lawyer Steve Kerin told the Port News they were "acting on behalf of a number of mature women, all previous students of Port Macquarie High School during the years 1970s to 1990s".
"At this stage there are multiple possible individual actions which may result in a class action," Mr Kerin said.
There are no criminal proceedings being pursued.
Port Macquarie High School said it is offering support for past and present students.
The Department of Education maintains that it offers its full support to any victim of abuse and will work collaboratively with NSW Police to ensure that justice is served.
One of the alleged victims, Debra Hood, who graduated from the school in 1980 said it was cathartic that after more than 30 years the story was finally being told in the town where it allegedly happened.
Ms Hood said more women had come forward since the Port News story was published on May 14.
"As I had hoped, and somewhat expected more students have contacted our Teacher's Pet Released page on Facebook to tell of more very unpleasant stories of abuse by teachers," Ms Hood said.
"These incidents have caused lifelong physical and emotional hurt to the victims.
"I believe the more we delve into this and as people open up, the more obvious it will be that sexual, physical and emotional abuse was rife in our state education institutions."
Ms Hood urged the Department of Education not to "fob victims of sexual abuse off by telling them to 'report it it to the police'".
"The Department would know that the current criminal laws of this country are not retrospective, and as such, the police can do nothing for any historical sexual assault victim over the age of 16 years," Ms Hood said.
She wants to know what "support" the Department of Education is offering and says she is yet to hear from any representative of the Department since the allegations were made public.
Ms Hood said victims were "not going away and will be heard".
