As stated on many web pages such as top primary / secondary schools, primary / secondary school ratings and Compare Primary / Secondary Schools, for the Overall Academic Performance Rating or State Overall Score, score of 100 is the highest while 60 is the lowest. The higher the score, the better. So score of 100 is the best. Be aware that the score has a floor value of 60.

State Overall Score is an academic performance index rather than a ranking position in the state. However, the rank of the school within the state can be easily derived from the State Overall Score. If the school's state overall score is 90, it means top (100-90)/(100-60)*100=25% or (100-90)%*2.5=25% in the state. So it can be converted to state overall percentage.

For school ratings, the more books, the better literacy test results; the more medals, the better the numeracy test results. See also How "stars" and scores are accurately tabulated.

Note that the state overall score measures the school's English and Maths test results only while Year 12 results based school ranking measures the results of all subjects (the Year 12 overall student achievement results). Please visit the following topic for details.
Why is there discrepancy between school ranking and high school rating?

I was wondering if you could help me compare NSW and Vic rankings? Are the
percentage scores comparable? If so it seems VIC is way behind NSW? What is the
figure I can look at that runs across both states? I am trying to compare Melbourne
Girls Grammar School with SCEEGS Darlinghurst.


Strictly speaking, state overall scores are comparable within the state while Maths and English results are comparable across states. However, the percentage scores can be used to compare schools in different states.

In your example, Melbourne Girls Grammar School: 97 (top 7.5%) vs SCEEGS Darlinghurst: 98 (top 5%). Both are excellent schools.

How to compare schools in different states

For example, NSW v QLD primary or high schools.

First you can find the schools' ratings via the following links:

http://bettereducation.c...imary_school_rating.aspx vs http://bettereducation.c...imary_school_rating.aspx

http://bettereducation.c...ndary_school_rating.aspx vs http://bettereducation.c...ndary_school_rating.aspx

Then compare their State Overall Scores, see http://bettereducation.c...school-rating.aspx#2576.

Please tell us whether the above information helps. If not, please let us know more details about your requirements in comparing schools in different states or the reason. If necessary, we can develop a facility to compare schools in different states on a single page.

FYI:

You can find national top schools using national overall score:

http://bettereducation.c...top_primary_schools.aspx

Note these pages are yet to be updated.
