    Which school is better?

    Hey! I am currently in Year 10 and I have applied for 3 selective schools this year. Of these, I got into 2 of these schools. Which should I accept? The schools I have been accepted into are Normanhurst Boys High School and NBSC Manly Selective Campus. I want you to not only take into account academics but also the school life at those schools. This includes presence of "Druggos". Both schools offer all 7 of my HSC courses I want to undertake.

    Take into account how well each school performs in each subject that you're choosing for next year. I don't think there are too many "druggos" at Manly Selective, however, there are a select few kids who are just natural geniuses and do not care at all about their education (I know a few people there). Oh and its co-ed, so keep that in mind.

    By distance, it is probably Manly, but Normanhurst has trains so same time would be taken to get to both schools.
