Ogilvie High School - grade 7-10 is an all girls public high. New Town High - grade 7-10 is an all boys public high. Both these schools are very good schools - my son went to New Town High and loved it and he has made great life long mates. Taroona High - grade 7-10 is a co-ed school and is a decent 25-35 min school bus trip (depending on traffic). The kids catch the bus at 7:30am from West Hobart. This school is on the river front in Taroona. Great reputation, but it is a distance to travel each day. Then you have the private schools in the immediate area - St Marys - Kinder - 12 girls only. Guildford Young gr 7 -12 Co-Ed. Friends Kinder - 12. Collegiate Kinder - 12. St Virgil's Kinder - 10 .
