REVEALED: The top schools in Gladstone for OP results

FOUR Gladstone Region high schools have appeared on a list of the top-performing Queensland schools for OP results in 2017.

The list ranked schools that had more than 10 OP-eligible students that graduated last year.

Toolooa State High School scored especially well, coming in at number 17 of the 380 schools ranked.

More than 38% of the OP-eligible students at Toolooa scored OPs between 1 and 5.

Acting principal Justin Harrison said the result came down to "a lot of hard work" on the part of the students.

"I know the report that came out is only focusing on OP 1 to 5 students, but we had 100 per cent of our students receive (an OP score of) 1 to 16, which is outstanding," Mr Harrison said.

Bryan Townsend has served as deputy principal at the school for almost seven years.

"Our focus in recent years has been on gradual improvements," he said.

"It's really crucial parents work with the school. It's vital they build that connection... from day one."

Teacher Tracy Porteous said she was proud of the ranking, which showed the results of "all the work we are doing with our reading and writing (with) our juniors".
