There are lots of reason to choose Algester State School. However in this section, we wish to inform you of our distinctiveness and excellence in Education.
Let the data tell the story!
Algester v's local private schools!
As parents consider enrolments for 2021 and beyond we want you
to be proud of your local State School and let our community know just how
great we are! This page provides you with the
evidence to show your friends and neighbours that your kids go to a great
school! We outperform the local private schools where it really counts, that's
in the quality educational outcomes for our students. So take a look, and stand
up and be proud that your tax payer funded local State School is an
internationally recognised Apple Distinguished School and matching that
reputation with outstanding results. State Schools are Great Schools!
This following shows some our Year 3 & 5 NAPLAN results from 2019. The
two unnamed schools are our closest two private primary schools.
We want you to see the data so you can make an informed decision.
Data from QCAA Naplan Outcomes Report 2019
You can also see the data of our school compared to other schools on the Federal Government's Myschool website. We encourage you to explore this for yourself so you don't just judge a book by its cover, but delve in to investigate how it is performing against local schools, national schools and like schools. Algester punches above its weight with the local schools and performs on par or above with national schools. We also compare well with schools similar to our own. You can discover this for yourself on the Myschool website. Do you know how your local school is performing? Don't forget to check how they are performing against their like schools. This is a good measure to see if they are value adding to their community.
Upper Two Bands - Outstanding Results!
The Upper Two Bands is the new way of referring to children who are operating at an A and B level of learning. They are our top performing students. The following two graphs show how well our children at Algester State School are performing with significant percentages of our children in the upper two bands in Reading and Maths.
How well does your local school compare? If you have a bright child and you want them challenged with other bright children, then Algester State School is the place for your child. We consistently cater for the needs of our highest achieving learners and they continue to produce outstanding results!
High Satisfaction expressed by our community
Our parents are surveyed once a year by Education Qld. The following graphs shows some of these results and the wonderful support our community has for our school. Get on board and join us! We are a great school.
Comparing schools with like cohorts
All schools are not the same and they attract different types of students. The MySchool Website compares the NAPLAN data of schools with other schools that have similar students. The following graphs depict Algester State School's performance compared to like schools as well as the two closest private schools. As you can see Algester is performing at or above its like schools. Both the other schools are yet to achieve this level of achievement.
