Ruse is a lively and encouraging environment to grow up in, with plenty of support from principals and teachers and students to help you perform well as a group (not just individually), which is the main reason it does so well. So yeah it's an amazing school that works very well as a team, but it's hard to judge for a best school in the whole southern hemisphere because there's so much to compare.

And "forgive" man please stop trashing our cohort across all the forums with inflammatory nonsense - it's annoying considering we all tried our best and didn't even do bad either - and the last thing we need is an insider adding to the crap bigoted students from other schools dump on us. And aside from the shallow measure of our cohort's quality by our position on the school rank table, it seems kind of hypocritical considering we've still achieved much that your cohort hasn't been able to do - such as bronze and silver medallists at the IPhO/IBO, reaching a national level in the Aust. Science/Engineering Challenge, and so on.
but your year needed more stacey law's and klams so as to reduce the shame imposed on your cohort :L

LOLjk you still did alright

Does the DA list include the total number of exams sat by the school as that information is needed to work out the ranking - the ranking is the percentage of Band 6s remember.

I'm not really sure... it just looks more realistic and statistical than SMH
Just different ways of ranking schools. SMH uses percentage of Band 6s across all subjects while this site uses only English and Maths band 6s

Not only that it managed to leave out my school completely. I have been through the list 6 times and can't find my school at all (maybe they combined us with another school with a similar name).

Can't work out how they arrived at the 'Overall DA%' figure. In any case they haven't ranked it using the normal method which is why it is different from the SMH list. Clearly they didn't have access to the Overall Exams Sat figures.
