    I don't know Unley High, but I do know that you would only get a place at Adelaide High if you lived in the catchment area, and even then it's not guaranteed if you are looking at joining after year 8. I usually advise to look at the websites as they can give quite a good feel for the schools. A lot of schools have newsletters on the websites as well which can give you quite a feel for what goes on., and if you can find the context statement that's also useful for getting a feel for the school. Also check out the myschool.edu.au website for more info on things like Naplan result.

    My grandchildren go to Unley High and are very happy there, also my daughter is very happy with the education and attitude there. I understand it is one of the better schools in Adelaide. I think they have a catchment area though, which means you have to be living in the area included within their boundaries. This website will give you information on each school and help you make your choice. http://myschool.edu.au/

    Unley HS has long had an excellent reputation, especially for academic achievement. It has been in the top 3 state high schools for decades and certainly out-performs many private schools and colleges. My daughter attended the school and credits it with being instrumental in her university education and working life. I believe that Penny Wong is also a former scholar, but she and Julia Gillard are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to former students doing well in their careers.

     

    Having said that, there is no one school that is 'right' for every student. It all boils down to the special relationship that exists in the classroom between the teacher and the students - and on the parents' commitment to being involved and supportive.
