Rockhampton's best to most struggling high schools revealed

WINNER, WINNER: Rockhampton Grammar School have come out on top.
WINNER, WINNER: Rockhampton Grammar School have come out on top.

IT'S THE nerve-racking test that many teachers and their students loath.

But the results have been published for every Rockhampton parent to see, pitting school against school across Rockhampton.

But there are some clear winners.

Private school students are steaming ahead of their public school peers, suggesting it pays off to fork out for your child's education.

Private schools taking out the top five in both grade seven and grade nine.

The public release of each school's results has been controversial, as critics claim it simplifies the diverse challenges teachers at each school faces.

But supporters say it gives parents the ability to make an informed choice about where they want to send their children.

Rockhampton Grammar School came out ahead overall, placing first in grade seven and second in grade nine. 

NAPLAN tests a child's ability in five categories, including reading, writing, spelling, grammar and punctuation, and numeracy.

Children are tested in grade three, five, seven, and nine.

We have provided the results of grade 7 and 9 at Rockhampton high schools.

Perhaps the most disturbing result for parents across the region, is that many of our public schools were on par or above Australian schools with students from a similar socio-economic status, but substantially below all schools.
