Academic Excellence Stream
Liverpool Boys High School values all learning needs of our community and makes every effort to address them. In recognising the diversity of our learners, we are offering an Academic Excellence Stream to allow high potential students from the local area to have the best possible education.
The Academic Excellence Stream (AES) is an acceleration program where high potential students are enabled to move through the curriculum at a faster rate based on their performance. Students are mentored and supported by highly qualified teachers to make better choices, so they maximise their learning potential outcomes every year and achieve the best possible HSC and ATAR.
The Academic Excellence Stream serves a need of challenging talented students, in a local educational setting. In addition, it provides an extra dimension to our general aim of providing each student with an excellent academic, cultural, social and physical education.
What does high potential mean?
High potential students are those whose potential exceeds that of students of the same age.
This could be in one or more areas, such as:

- require fewer repetitions when learning new things
