|We came to Australia to make it our 2nd home country. However, there has been a group of people including the teachers putting you down even humiliating you. All the experience in the school tells you they don't value you. Anyway, the school never teaches kids to call themselves Australia or sing national anthem at assembling.|

|Overcrowded school, school does not have a firm bullying policy - academic performance and NAPLAN results is one thing, the social well being of our children is more important IM0. The major issues is the school had become too large which means they are spread too thin, you child is more vunerable in this environment and slip through the cracks.|

|My daughter now thinks this school is amazing, but as she has recently said, people at her school always behave rudely and ALWAYS call each other names. When I visited Serpell, I realised it was very populated. Going over many things, Serpell is okay. But the lady at the office NEEDS to get changed, as she is too rude and impolite.|

|Great school with extensive additional education programs not found in many other public schools, thanks to the dedication and drive of the Principal and Staff. The education and welfare of the children are always the first and foremost priority.|
Like all inner Melbourne schools, with recent population growth student numbers have increased markedly, however this has been handled extremely well within their budget constraints. I understand additional classrooms are scheduled for construction in the very near future, which should elevate some current pressures they have.
The outstanding academic results that this school produces makes it a must go to school for both local children, whilst it's international reputation makes it a draw card for new Australians. The results this school produces is higher than most private schools.
With its high cultural diversity this school is very much a reflection of our world, giving the students a firm grounding in understanding and appreciating working with and benefiting from different views and approaches.
With a strong focus on developing children as independent thinkers and leaders, with a strong sense of belonging to and acting within the best interests of the community.
Serpell Primary School is a school for parents who want the best foundation to build their child's education on. I highly recommend this school.

|I went to this school from 2006-2012 and i found it to be a wonderful school. It definitely gave me an strong advantage in the following years of my schooling. It was a supportive environment to learn in and the staff created a great atmosphere to make friends and build strong connections. |

|I thought Serpell was good, unfortunately, not what we expected, quite disappointed!!!|
"Good school results is from majority of students doing extra tutoring outside of the school." This is a TRUTH!!!

|Serpell has become so big now that your child is just a number $$$ and not an individual. Eight Prep classes are enrolled for 2015 & they cannot even accommodate them - two classes will be housed in the "open space" (hall way) of the Foundation Building - it's unacceptable.|
However don't raise any concerns with the Principal, you'll just be fobbed off or 'silenced' so your concerns will go nowhere.

|School is getting way too big with average class size 28 students and over 160 students in a year level and growing. Good school results is from majority of students doing extra tutoring outside of the school. |
