About this guide

Think of this page almost like a school counselor, helping you through the tough decision of choosing the best school for your child. It includes a table listing some of the top primary schools in Victoria. You’ll also find some handy articles filled with helpful tips and advice on the benefits of tutoring and how to choose the right school for your child.

What the table shows

The table below shows the 150 top primary schools in Victoria.

To find the education information for each school, such as NAPLAN numeracy and literacy results, number of students enrolled and ISCEA socio economic advantage values, head on over to the myschools webpage for each school (found in the last column of the table below). If you need a little help navigating their website, check out our tips to getting the most out of the My Schools website .

For interest, we have provided the search volume for each of the top 150 schools in the table below.

Search volume is a metric that shows how often people search for something on Google each month. It’s a great indicator of how poplar something is – the more people that search for something, the higher the search volume.

It can also indicate the size of a school – the larger the school, the more students and parents might search for it on Google.
