|The school is good in some aspects. But too many useless policies about uniform and timetable. It feels as if the school could be spending their time on bigger issues such as wellbeing and/or education. I'm not sure if this is just because of the Australian curriculum but it also feels like everything is rushed too much as well and the teachers don't have time to explain everything thourghly. |
I also don't like the principal and teachers in higher positions abuse their power and authority to make ridiculous rules in order to control us and target students when matters arise especially if it may harm the schools repuatation in any way. I have never been singled out myself but i have seen it happen to many students unfairly.
I also believe that the school cares a lot more about their reputation then they do about what the students. Even as far back as grade nine, many teachers still recommend students against subjects they may be interested in for future VCE based on the scores they recieve as early as then instead of trying to support students to become better in their subject so they can work their way towards it.
Many of the teachers subtly disencourage students and there's also too much favouritism.
But all that being said,there are also many good teachers in this school too that are beyond amazing and make students really excited to learn and there are really nice students as well as discriminative students.
At the end of the day it really depends which crowd you fall into.
One thing I will say that the school does well is build a safe environment but unfortunately a safe environment doesn't always mean a happy one.

|The school created the best learning environment for students around eastern Melbourne. It is simply the best amount the government schools and better than most of private schools. The teachers are friendly and kind. Even though people arguing about the tutoring rates of students, but almost all the high performing schools have a private tutoring rate more than 50%. Those include the top 5o private school in victoria. |

|Average school. Students are tutored outside school so get good grades. The school do not let the students sit for the papers which they are not expected to do well and ask to differ to achieve good ranking. Not a good choice for students who are from non Asian backgrund.|
