I'm a born and bred hills girl. I haven't heard negatives about many primary schools up this way. I went to Crafers and it was a great school. My son will be going to Aldgate. Several are zoned so could depend on where you live. Do you want private or public?

I grew up in the hills too but have lived in Melbourne the last few years. Looking at moving home
Can I ask what you like about Aldgate? How many kids are there? I want public school do you know if there's a kindergarten attached to the school? I know so many of them are zoned but I don't know exactly where we will be living yet

If you were looking further north in the hills i would definitely recommend Spring Head Primary School at Mt Torrenz

Most of my friends kids go to Aldgate and they speak very highly of it. Good teachers, nice surroundings etc. there is an Aldgate kindy, but lots of kids I know went to snows road, or one attached to their daycare centre like the ranges early learning centre.
Mylor is good, but very small with mixed year level classes. Other friends kids go to Stirling East primary, and again are happy with it. I think most schools around Stirling, Crafers, Aldgate, mylor and echunga are all pretty good. They all have very informative websites.

He's almost 3, so not till the start of 2017 :-) high school will probably at St Francis in Mt Barker, or cornerstone. I might look at some of the mid range (price wise!) private schools in town.

It's not at the moment but due to increased demand I think they are considering it :-)
