Kelvin Grove State College Joins Elite in 2023 School Rankings

Kelvin Grove State College

Kelvin Grove State College has emerged as a rising star in Queensland’s educational landscape, securing a spot among the top 50 high schools in the state, according to the latest rankings by Better Education.



The independent specialist schools website, Better Education, recently unveiled its updated list of Queensland’s top 150 schools for Years 7–10. This compilation ranks public and private institutions based on their Year 9 English and Math test results in 2023.

While the top four schools remained unchanged from the previous year, Northside Christian College made a significant leap forward, joining a select group of institutions that have substantially improved their standing. This achievement places Northside among the most improved schools across the state, reflecting its commitment to academic excellence and holistic student development.

Kelvin Grove State College

It was established in 2002 through the amalgamation of Kelvin Grove State High School and Kelvin Grove State School, as part of the Queensland government’s Smart State initiative. This merger transformed the school into a P-12 institution, catering to students from preparatory through year 12.

The school’s history dates back further than its official establishment in 2002. The original Kelvin Grove State School was opened in 1924, while Kelvin Grove State High School was established in 1950. These institutions served the local community for decades before their merger into the current Kelvin Grove State College.

Annandale Christian College in Townsville, St Luke’s Anglican School in Bundaberg, and Tamborine Mountain State High School in the Scenic Rim all made substantial gains, showcasing the growing strength of educational institutions in regional areas.

Other notable climbers included Immanuel Lutheran College on the Sunshine Coast, Springfield Anglican College in Ipswich, and St Andrew’s Lutheran College on the Gold Coast.
