The Best Primary Schools in Melbourne for 2023

  • Preschoolers

Choosing one of the best primary schools in Melbourne for your son or daughter presents most of us parents with one of the hardest decisions we'll likely make on the job.

There are so many factors that go into selecting the best primary school in Melbourne for your kids—location, results, school ranking, teachers, number of students per class, whether their friends are also attending... and the list goes on and on.

While high schools are predominantly ranked according to previous HSC results, Better Education uses a variety of results to deliver top primary school rankings, including NAPLAN results, their English and Maths rankings, total enrolments, overall academic performance, and beyond to gauge which schools are performing at the top of their game.

Here's 2023's rundown of the best primary schools in Melbourne.
