5 Kerry secondary schools are among the top 100 in the country.
That’s according to the Sunday Times Best Schools Guide, which was released this morning.
Of the Kerry schools in the top 100, the Gaelcholáiste Chiarraí in Tralee ranks highest at 39th.
The Presentation Secondary Schools in both Listowel and Tralee, Coláiste Íde in Dingle, and St Brigid’s Secondary School in Killarney all make the top 100, while Mean Scoil Naomh Ioseph in Castleisland is ranked 101st.
The rankings are based on the average proportion of students over the last three years who’ve gone on to any of Ireland’s universities, main teaching colleges, Royal College of Surgeons or National College of Art and Design.
