|As a former student I watch the performance of the school with interest. Certainly, its students ace the year 12 results year after year. It gave me an excellent result and I attended a top Uni and have a sucessful career. |
However, you'd expect good results given the socioeconomic fortune of many of the students (the normalization of middle/upper middle class backgrounds and aspirations), excellent facilities, as well as frequent drill style practices of mock ranking tests (AST in my day) in the senior school.
Like any high cost private school, students leave with high academic scores and potential for high social capital, by this I mean networks, a sense of confidence, comfort in a business suit (look at the uniforms), and an expectation that they will be a leader (and dare I say it, a sense of entitlement). All things which assist in conventional success. So, in summary, a good introduction to life and therefore a good school.

|Undoubtedly the best school in Canberra. proud parent of three students! Radford has the highest academic results of all local schools, but more importantly they really give kids the individual attention and care they need.|
