Vic Schools Mashup
For the somewhat limited audience of parents looking at neighbourhoods and schools in Victoria, Australia, I present the Victorian Schools / Google Maps Mashup. Note that there are two pages; one for secondary schools, one for primaries.
It’s not perfect (in particular, many of the addresses only have street resolution), but it does include both state and private schools, with affiliations, approximate enrolment numbers, URLs where available. Additionally state schools’ markers indicate their Like School Group — a curious and very useful metric. Clicking on the map also shows you the closest non-selective state school (which in theory is the one your kids should go to by default).
Have fun and report bugs below.
