In the west apart from the ones already mentioned; girra, penrith, sefton, parra

(These are North West)I'd say Model Farms, Castle Hill, Cherrybrook, St Marys, Cabrra, Fairfield, Canley Vale - but these are academic

They are improving, but knowing the people there I think it was just a storng cohort.

Cabra and Canley Vale are decent because I think they have accelerated maths

Does having an accelerated subject increase your schools academic capability? (srs question)

13. ## Re: Good schools in Western Suburbs

Epping Boys, Carlingford, Cherrybrook and Cheltenham Girls are the only exceptionally good comprehensive schools if you consider those places Western Sydney.

All the Selective schools in Western Sydney like Baulkham Hills, Girraween, Penrith, James Ruse etc.

Private/religious schools in Western Sydney meh, don't bother going to any of them as they are all crap. If you want to go to those sorts of schools but good ones, better head towards the North shore or Eastern suburbs.

Well yes because that increases the amount of band 6's (by only like 10)

To be honest I consider most schools in the West except the Selective schools are total trash. I mean its Western Sydney after all! Even though Penrith is selective its usual rankings are pretty shit and sometimes even Girraween.

Well there are some good non selective schools in western sydney. If you're referring to "western sydney" I'm assuming you're referring to north, "west" and south western sydney rather than "western western sydney" (i.e. parramatta, penrith, etc)

Carlingford high is one, you've got sefton high, prariewood high, bonnyrigg high, canley vale high, cherrybrook tech and yeah that's all I know of atm

Bruh they rekked fort street last year in the HSC

Usually the good non selective schools are in the inner west (i.e. straithfield and burwood) and the northern surburbs

Look at burwood girls as an example or a school like Mosman high or chatswood high

I think the best way to eliminate the stigma of "bad schools in western sydney" is that they should start introducing more fully selective (and some partially selective schools) in those low socioeonomic areas. I believe that by doing this, this starts to make western sydney "more academic like" and it creates a balance of good academic education facilities for students in all areas.

Say in Area "A" there were 4 schools: school 1, school 2, school 3 and school 4 and all of them were non selective and weren't highly ranked, I think making school 1 in a fully selective school and making school 2 in a partially selective school will help the area in terms of its academics and although school 3 and school 4 remain local, the area will start to develop a reputation of some sort in academics

good luck convincing the politicians to do this, there will never be meaningful change unless the problem of Low SES is strictly addressed. You will just have the good teachers move elsewhere instead of trying to change the system and have the shit teachers just stay there for the easy paycheck

I fully agree with this. But a lot of people are too piss poor to be living in these areas and lot of them lie about their addresses to get into these schools like Cherrybrook.

Cherrybrook Tech is definitely not in Western Sydney and Carlingford is kind of borderline Western Sydney but not really. Their both in Northern Sydney.
