Any Experiences on Glenunga / Norwood / Marryatville High Schools

    Recommended Posts

    Hi,

     

    Just arrived in Adelaide and will probably look to settle on the eastern side of the city, so considering the following high schools

     

    Glenunga

    Norwood Morialta

    Marryativille

     

    If anyone has experiences good or bad on these schools they could share that would be really appreciated.

     

    Thanks

    Glenunga and Marryatville both excellent schools. I would be more than happy to get my kids in to these schools but can't afford to buy in the zoned areas. My eldest did try and get on the ignite program at Gelnunga but only managed to get on the waiting list. He is now going to Norwood Morialta, which is also a good school and is the reason why we are living where we are. He has only been there for 9 weeks so difficult to really make too many judgements but he seems to be happy so far and is doing pretty well. Glenunga offer the IB right up to year 12 and Norwood Morialta only offer it to year 10 at the moment but they are trying to introduce it for years 11 and 12 as well.

     

    It's also worth noting that some of the eastern suburbs are in the zone for Adelaide High which is also considered to be an excellent school. When looking at exactly where to live have a look at which school the area is zoned for. The eastern suburbs are lovely and an excellent choice of area to settle in.

    Marryatville has an excellent music programme and facilities - it is known as the "cheapest private school in Adelaide" obviously because it is a state school but ids as good as - if not better - than many private schools. There are some very bright kids that go to Glenunga as it has the Ignite programme for gifted and talented kids. All I know about Norwood Morialta is that their Year 10 boys soccer team a few years bacj swore worse than any other team my son's team played! Think they may have even taught me a few new words!

    looking at Aberfoyle park for my 13 year old daughter. They have been brilliant. looking forward to our visit in September and they have figured out a way for her to spend the day in lessons so she can get a real feel for the school.

    Can't rate them high enough
