Mandurah Catholic College had the highest percentage of students to graduate with 98.19 per cent of 166 eligible year 12 students.

78 of these students completed school with an ATAR and their median was 78.45.

Out of 146 Frederick Irwin year 12 students 128 obtained an ATAR result by sitting at least four exams with a school median of 73.55 per cent.

Of 98 Mandurah Baptist College year 12 students, 72 received an ATAR and 92.86 per cent graduated.

The only public school in Mandurah to make it into the table was Halls Head College with 42 students out of a possible 131 to receive an ATAR. 89.31 per cent of their students graduated.

John Tonkin College had the highest percentage of students who achieved a certificate two or higher in vocational education and training (VET) courses.

With 70 students doing VET out of 128 year 12 John Tonkin students, 98.57 per cent achieved a certificate two or higher.
