Umina public school is excellent! If you are looking for private however, St John the Baptist school also has an excellent reputation. As for high schools, I studied at Brisbane Water Secondary, Umina Junior campus and Woy Woy Senior campus and those were some of the best years of my life. All peninsula schools are of very high standard. No need to go private on the peninsula, the public schools are excellent. I studied at Woy Woy PS and moved on to Brisbane Water secondary and when I finished school I went on to study enginering. Peninsula schools are of very high quality.
