Toowoomba is blessed with some of the best schools in the country and arguably the best when it comes to performance v cost. I suggest all parents do the appropriate research to establish what school they would like their children to attend. The map below shows Toowoomba and surrounding suburbs and the link below it takes you to an interactive map to Toowoomba school catchment zones.
Public schooling is generally based on the educational needs of children who live locally. Each school has a catchment zone, which is a geographical area which defines where students need to live in order to be guaranteed admission to a particular school.
The boundaries of these designated neighbourhoods can change and for some schools these zones have been shrinking over the years.
School catchment areas are not only important factors to consider when choosing a home so that your children can attend your preferred school you often find that properties that fall within the catchment for the best government schools often fetch premium prices.

As a proud father I know how important it is to make sure I afford my son the opportunities in life that were not available to me. A huge part of that is education. A simple decision like what suburb let alone street can make all the difference to the education that he receives and ultimately the life choices that education will bring. I hope this page has helped you find a little more information in relation to where you need to be located to send your children to your preferred school.
