I would like people's opinions on Kew High School?

Good, bad & indifferent comments welcome.... we are contemplating it as an option for our children? But i am struggling to find reviews on the standard of education and the school in general. All feedback would be appreciated.

As a current student of Kew high school I do not recommend that you send your children there. Buildings are infested with asbestos. Teachers don't know what they are teaching. The schools main and only focus is the presentation of the school to get new students to raise their funding from the gorverment. Their is also a major bullying problem at the school. To add to it the school is known to be a druggy/alcohol school.

Don't have first hand experience but going by recent VCE results it's one of the top performing government schools in Melbourne so academic standard is very good.

I unfortunately went to Kew High School. It was a place where I was belittled, insulted and discouraged from learning by teachers. Out of the numerous examples I could give, which include a Literature teacher barely attending to teach our class in Year 12 or a Math teacher who took great satisfaction from declaring to the class I had done poorly on a test, perhaps the one that comes to mind strongest is towards the end of Year 12, we were asked to choose our preferences for university as we had set up our VTAC accounts in class. As I was doing so, the co-ordinator of our year level, sneaks behind me and very openly states to myself and the entire class that I shouldn't bother doing so because I wasn't going go to University. Since then, I have completed two Bachelor degrees and I am currently close to completing my Masters Degree at a prestigious University overseas. Absolutely ZERO thanks to this school or its teachers.

I left Kew High last year because I was badly bullied and harassed by older boys. the environment at KHS is very male dominated, and the learning is not good. The teachers are of poor quality, I found learning very hard there, because especially in math it was either you were really good at math or you weren't very good, and the not very good people including me weren't properly helped to understand the topic, instead we were sometimes scolded for it by staying behind in class and copying down the whiteboard. there was almost no day when I had math at the end of the day when I didn't miss my bus to get home because we would have to stay in, not getting any better idea of the topic we were meant to be learning, just catching up on it.
I personally do not recommend this school.
