Abbotsleigh Anglican School for GirlsEdit
Abbotsleigh was a fantastic school and I loved every minute of my time there. It set me up to be successful in life. My younger cousin also attended (upon my recommendation) and enjoyed it as much as I did.
Good reputation in the last years, best library, over 40,000 books! There are also eBooks. Internet is fast except for down in the sports car park. They look after us well with an awesome councilor, great safety rules. Transport is excellent, great buses and they hire a train for carnivals! The location is great, close to the village and the train station. Beautiful school grounds with amazing gardeners, great border food and great canteen. Most students and teachers are happy most of the time.
Great school but very strict
It is a very good school
We have been thrilled with this school, challenges everyone to do their best, fantastic dedicated teachers (many with PhDs in their subjects), great library, heaps of opportunities to do STEM subjects, debating, music & creative arts. They look for girls with more than just academic obsession, but keep the top students working at a very high level as well.
It is a wonderful learning space for young women
Cannot fault the school, by year 10 the girls have become respectful and considerate young people. They have enormous pride in the school and I believe they will process wonderful qualities to give them every opportunity to lead fulfilling lives. Abbotsleigh offers dedicated education and great pastoral care.
Very academic school that often uses humiliation as a method to encourage the girls. Ruston in primary school runs the school like a military school with OUTRAGEOUSLY strict rules (ie ear piercings and sick days).Primary students get stratified in Y5 with nearly all students getting coached outside school from kindergarden. School condemns coaching outwardly, but child will not succeed otherwise. Stressful school is an understatement. Primary school coaching = CRAZY COMPETITIVE!!!Not a nice plac
The school was one where the girls were bearable and some of the teachers were either amazing or so bad the tests they set were impossible. I do hope their English department is improved because no student can learn in steaming hot rooms.
Abbotsleigh is an amazing school, with loads of friendly students and staff. It also has a great reputation, and a wide range cocorricular activities.
