    Default Private schools North Lakes area (Brisbane)

    Hi,

    I've just moved from Sydney and I've been looking at schools for my DS who starts prep next year and was wondering what the reputations are like for the schools in this area. The state school we're in catchment for is huge and overcrowded so I'm looking at private schools. We're looking at Mueller, The Lakes College, and St Pauls School atm. Does anyone have any experience with these schools? Are there any others we should look at?

    It's hard being new to the area to sort out the truth from the marketing guff.

    Thanks in advance.

    We're looking at St Paul's. BIL went there and said it was a pretty good school. PIL were also happy with it. No experience personally though

    Thanks! Did he go there for junior or just senior?

    I've looked a bit more into Mueller and it seems a tad too Bible-centric to be a good fit for us, so I'm now looking at The Lakes College, St Pauls, and Living Faith Anglican.

    My DD goes to St Benedict's and we have been very happy there. I know of a couple of people who haven't been happy at Living Faith and moved their kids to St Paul's, which they found a much better fit.

    Our Lady of the Way at Petrie is also a very sweet school.
