Primary School Ranking – North Brisbane and Moreton

Primary school ranking for Brisbane in 2019 is out now.  The rankings for Brisbane schools are extracted from Year 5 NAPLAN data and is based on results in maths and English.  Of course, NAPLAN doesn’t tell the whole story about what makes your local northside primary school great.  

Young children get so much more from school than simple academics, so if your school doesn’t appear on the top rankings leader board, it doesn’t mean it’s not a terrific place to send your child!  These are simply a guide based on the NAPLAN standardised testing.  This primary school ranking table is a guide for parents but it’s NOT the be all and end all of choosing the right school for your child.

Because people’s definitions of ‘Northside’ and ‘Western Suburbs’ and ‘Southside’ may vary – please check each list if you cannot find your school!

They may be listed in primary school rankings for:

Primary School Ranking – Brisbane West and Ipswich Corridor

    NAPLAN is the signature of a broken education system. It signifies top down control which directly impacts upon children’s learning. I urge parents to consciously consider the ridiculous assessment schedule children are subjected to. NAPLAN is a flawed test, it is now over time for it to be removed.
