Top 50 Victoria, Melbourne Primary Schools In Map

First I want to clarify, this set of maps is also based on 2019 data released in 2020 which is the most recent one. NAPLAN was canceled in 2020, so there is no data release in 2021, we will have to wait until 2022 for the next set of data releases.

48 out of 50 top Victorian primary schools are concentrated in Melbourne, with only two exceptions that are in or near Geelong.

Following is where all the top 50 Victoria, Melbourne primary schools, as you can see they are mainly concentrated in Melbourne’s central, eastern and southeastern areas with a splash in the northern suburbs. This is to be expected as traditionally in Australia the top public/government schools are concentrated in the affluent and well-established suburbs. In Melbourne’s case, these types of suburbs tend to be near the city center, also to the east and southeastern side. This matches the locations of the top primary schools extremely well.
