The School once again improved its ranking from 25th in 2013 to 18th in 2014, with a number of exceptional individual results to complement this overall result.

Three Year 11 accelerants were in the top five students in the state in Modern Hebrew Continuers with Libby Feldman ranking 1st; Alia Huberman 3rd and Sharon Bar-On placing 5th. Year 12 student, Barton Shteinman, ranked 7th in Economics.

Seven of the School’s HSC candidates are on the Premier’s All Rounders List and the School ranked 13th in the State in English.

At least 25% of our students received an ATAR of 95 and over, with Jacob Silove, the Dux of the School with an ATAR of 99.80

Anne Hastings, Principal of Emanuel School commented: ‘This has been another exceptional year for our HSC students and the School. The results also put us in the top 10 independent schools and the top 10 non-selective schools.

I wholeheartedly congratulate our students who have learnt so effectively and worked so hard to achieve these outstanding results. I also highly commend our talented and dedicated teachers who have supported our HSC students’ learning comprehensively over the years. We look forward to 2015 and the opening of our new building, which can only complement to the School’s amazing success.’

    There is too much emphasis on these scores it’s not healthy at this age .Ought be Pass or Fail .Its a destructive not creative competition. .As for University the costs are too high they favour inherited wealth.The socioeconomic gap is too great even in wealthy Australia.Also discipline is too slack and adolescents are too indulged . The wreckage in the Rural Areas from Drugs Reveals a huge need to return to evolved religions and Utilitarian ways .
