2020 Top Schools

We extract data on high performing schools. This analysis is based on the results of the school's top five students from each of Years 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12. We use this method so that we do not disadvantage schools which enter whole Years, compared with schools which only enter their best students. In 2020 the top schools by state and territory were:
