How to choose a school?

Actually I'm still not sure if I've picked the right school. It's definitely not the best school. It's a convenient school for us as it's walking distance.

So one website that is available is
It says it has an  index of community socioeducational advantage (ICSEA). No matter how I read it sounds like socioeconomic status of the school community. So I guess the higher the number the better off the students' families are.

They use the naplan testing here.  I don't really know what they test on these tests yet.  Apparently some schools are pretty relaxed about this. 
One way to see if a particular student cohort has added value is to look at this chart.  If they are about national average then the school is performing pretty average. If the school is doing better than average than that is evident on this graph.

We also did the school tours to have a look at school facilities and to meet the principal and to get a feel of the school.
