Primary School Ranking – Brisbane Southside, Logan and Redlands


Primary School Ranking – Brisbane Southside, Logan and Redlands

So which are the top ranked primary schools on Brisbane’s southside (including Redlands and Logan councils)?  We’ve gathered together some data based on NAPLAN scores to assist Southside Brisbane parents in choosing a school for their little one.  Primary school ranking by NAPLAN score is only one part of the big picture.  Just because a school appears in the top schools list, doesn’t mean it’s the right school for your child.  

This summary of top scoring schools for 2019 is just a guide to Year 5 NAPLAN results – not the overall quality of the school.  We love a great school and we’re proud to be a part of the Brisbane educational community.  If you’ve got a child starting school next year, or heading off to high school, Families Magazine provides you with the right information for making big parenting decisions.
