Yesodei HaTorah College has claimed bragging rights over its Victorian rivals, recording the highest percentage of students with a study score over 40. With an impressive 38 per cent of students topping 40, the Brighton school just pipped fellow perpetual high performers The Mac.Robertson Girls’ High School (37 per cent), and Bialik College and Mount Scopus Memorial College (36 per cent).
Fourth placed Ballarat Clarendon College was the sole regional school in the top five with 34 per cent, while Melbourne High School and St Kevin’s College both had 31 per cent of students score above 40.
The Mac.Robertson Girls’ High School and Melbourne High School are both government selective, while the remainder of the list hailed from the independent sector.
Ballarat Clarendon College Principal, David Shepherd says he’s delighted the Guide highlighted the school as one of Victoria’s top performers.
“Ballarat Clarendon College is proud to be named as one of Victoria’s exceptional schools by The Good School’s Guide – and to be the only regional school in the top 5 is an outstanding achievement. At Clarendon, we focus on the learning and the progress of every student and it is gratifying for all in our community that we are publicly acknowledged for delivering on our goal, says Shepherd.
Good Education Group CEO, Chris Lester, says that while academic results are important, they aren’t the only factor parents should look at when choosing a school.
“Academic performance shouldn’t be disregarded but there are lots of other reasons a school could be the right fit for a child. They might have modern sporting facilities, a great drama department, access to VET studies – there is plenty to take into consideration,” says Lester.
Good Education Group is Australia’s leading independent provider of education and career resources, dedicated to empowering people to make informed decisions about their future education and career pathways.
The annual Good Schools Guide is one of Good Education Group’s premier publications and comprehensively details 578 schools across Victoria, including a breakdown of each school by sector, academic performance, tuition fees and curriculum, helping parents to make well-informed decisions about the best school for their child.
