With well over half of the cohort in the top 10% of the state and 9 ‘perfect’ study scores the school is proud of the achievement of all of its graduates and their teachers.

9.8% of students achieved an ATAR score of 99 or over, 20% of students at 98 or over, 36% over 95 and 61% attained a score of 90 or above.

Principal, Rabbi James Kennard said, “We are delighted with this year’s first class results for Scopus students. With a close to two-thirds of our students with ATARs of 90 or over and nearly one in ten in the top 1% of the State, we congratulate our students and their teachers.

Amongst our top students are many who have gained so much from Scopus – the Jewish life, Performing Arts, Community and Service and Sports programs  and now they have shown their academic excellence as well”.

  • Special mentions also go to: Jeremy Wein (99.85), Richard Rotstein (99.8), Jarryd Shaw (99.75), Timothy Davis (99.55) and Joel Hermann (99.55).
