  • intense curiosity

  • displays a good memory
  • asks complex questions

Your child may benefit in being a student at a NSW Department of Education selective high school. Selective high schools are part of the NSW public education system.

A selective high school can provide your child with an education designed to stimulate their intellect, support their development and mix with other like-minded students.

There are 47 selective high schools across NSW which form part of the public education system.
