Outstanding Academic Performance
‘BETTER EDUCATION TOP PRIMARY SCHOOLS IN MELBOURNE’
The ‘Better Education Top Primary Schools in Victoria’ website ranks all independent and government primary schools in Victoria based on overall academic performance results. It is worth noting that with a score of 98 our school is ranked the 65th top performing school of all private, Catholic and government schools and 35th best performing government primary school in the state of Victoria. Given that there are over 1,700 government, Catholic and private primary schools in Victoria, this is an outstanding achievement.
KG is known for our wonderful ‘family’ atmosphere and we are justifiably proud of the social environment of our unique school community. However, we do not always draw attention to the consistently high academic performance of our students and the explicit teaching of our teachers. Our annual Naplan results are consistently strong and support the fact that we are a high performing Victorian school by any measure.
I am also quick to point out that we are a school who does not discriminate with new enrolments, we take all children and, depending on our students in a given year, our results will inevitably vary and we will always celebrate their performance, regardless of where the results may fall.
Yes we are a small, safe, caring school where the individual matters but academically we are consistently one of the highest performing primary schools in the state – something certainly worth celebrating.
