What’s the best high school in Australia? (Updated)

The best high schools in Australia, based on the percentage of students in each school, were compiled from the 2015 Australian Institute of Education (AIE) survey.

Key points: The best state-based schools were based on students’ academic achievement, which includes reading, maths, science and language abilityThe best local school was based on attendance, which is measured by students’ attendance at a school over a given period.

Key points: State-based high schools were ranked by academic achievement from the AIE 2015 survey; local schools were given the same weight as state schoolsThe AIE surveyed almost 3,000 students in 18 Australian states and territories, including the Northern Territory, Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Maroochydore region of New South Wales.

The best state schools were found in Victoria, which was named best state in Australia for academic achievement and attendance in the AIA’s 2016 Best State Schools survey.

The Northern Territory was ranked worst, with a lower score of 5.3.

In NSW, the top-ranked state, only one school was named the best local high school: Lamington, which had a score of 8.2.

In Victoria, the second-best state, two schools were named the top local high schools, the most recent being Mount Isa in Geelong.

The lowest-ranked school in the state was St John’s, with only one ranking, which made it the lowest ranked school in NSW.

The AIA survey was based upon the following questions:Which of the following is most important to you?

The number of students enrolled in the school.

The average number of years students attended the school in previous academic years.

The grade point average (GPA) in each of the previous two academic years (2015 and 2016).

Students in grades 7-12 (and in grade 12 for all grades) were included in the analysis.

Students in grade 6 were not included in this analysis because the results are not comparable for grades 6 to 12.

The survey included questions on school size and location.

The AIES survey is based upon a nationally representative sample of 1,000 Australian students taken from November 2018 to November 2019.

It is a representative sample to provide a comparison of schools and students across the states.
