High Schools near West Melbourne?

I'm moving to Melbourne soon and will be living in West Melbourne near Flagstaff Station :) What are the best government schools to go to? I am an international student, by the way :D


I've looked into University High, but as an international student, would it be difficult to enter? As it is selective entry, how would I test to get in? How about Princess Hill Secondary College or Northcote High School?

Update 2:

The extra s in Princes was a slight typo :D Do you mind if I send you a message, Sheila? You seem to know a lot about living in Melbourne :)

    University High would be the closest and best, but as Greg says it's a selective entry school. You could investigate Debney Park Secondary College in Flemington, or Footscray City College in Footscray. Both have good reputations and international students.

    Edit: I was trying to remember the name of Princes Hill (not Princess). Both it and Northcote would be worth looking at, but Northcote is a bit further away than the others.

    Contact University High as they may have a quota for international students, in which case there would be some way of doing the entry test online.

    the best government school in that area would be university high school, but it is a selective school so you would have to sit a test to qualify for admission
