    Default Trying to choose high school.

    I need to choose between two high schools for ds. We are going to choose between Mt Lawley senior high school in the north and Melville senior high school in the south.

    Anyone have any experience with these schools or know someone who has?

    It was average when I was there but I have heard that it's changed significantly since I was there. A friend sends one of her girls there (I think for the music program) on a scholarship and it seems so different. With new buildings, new uniforms and a new philosophy.

    I can't overly fault the education when I was there, more the building was useless, lots of truancy and a rough crowd but I think that's the sort of stuff that changed.
