KINROSS Wolaroi School in Orange has topped the list for the highest performing Central West school in this year's Higher School Certificate (HSC) results.
Around 75,000 students across NSW received their HSC marks on Tuesday morning, while data for schools was provided a little later.
Kinross was the highest ranked school in the region, and 140th in the state listings, data from the NSW Education Standards Authority shows.
It was followed by MacKillop College (Bathurst) at 196th, then St Stanislaus' College (Bathurst) at 237 and St John's College (Dubbo) at 238.
Fifth on the list was the recently-merged Scots All Saints College in Bathurst at 319.

Rounding out the top 10 was Hennessy Catholic College (Young) at 328, James Sheahan Catholic High School (Orange) at 341 and Red Bend Catholic College (Forbes) at 346.
Coming in 9th and 10th were the only two public schools to feature on the list - Dubbo College at 358 and Mudgee High School at 359.

The data also revealed the number of students at each school who received a Band 6 score.
To compare schools fairly across the Central West, these high scores are expressed as a percentage of total student entries and are called 'success rates'.
