Highgate Hill

More great news for owners of Highgate Hill real estate

The Brisbane State High School catchment area of Highgate Hill creates a lot of demand for property in the suburb. From a Highgate Hill real estate agent’s perspective, this is a big advantage to selling in the suburb!

And now Brisbane State High School has achieved joint 3rd in the new Queensland rankings of the Naplan testing at Year 9 level. School-by-school 2013 NAPLAN results, released on the Queensland Studies Authority website, reveal state schools, mostly in high socio-economic areas, posted about half of the top ten average scores for Years 3, 5 and 7. But the top marks drop away once students move into secondary, with only Brisbane State High School posting a top ten score for the sector in Year 9.

With the importance of school selection high on family buyers’ shopping list when looking for a home, this is a big draw card for Highgate Hill and neighbouring suburbs.
