All of the staff are caring and thoughtful, a wonderful environment for children to thrive and learn”
“The Knox School is truly a community school offering a great education, so glad my son attends this school”

“On the eve of her last day at The Knox School I would like to thank you for helping my angel become the beautiful woman she is today, you have helped her on the road to becoming all that she was meant to be and I will be forever in your debt. Thank you.”
“On Thursday I attended the QUT graduation ceremony for my son who received his Master of Laws during the evening. In 1996 he was a young boy attending The Knox School in Wantirna. I’m writing to acknowledge and thank the school for being a building block in Ryan’s educational experience. After a brief encounter with bullying at a local public school, his year at ‘Knox’ was stabilising and positive. He is fortunate to practice law with a national company in Brisbane, enjoying the many challenges of his career regardless of the many long days.
Best wishes to all the students you continue to nurture and educate and thanks to the educators for their enthusiasm, professionalism and compassion.”
“Overall The Knox School is a well-rounded school that provides its students with the ability to learn and grow in a well-supervised arena. Extra activities on offer help students and parents to interact with others, promoting self confidence and social awareness. Everyone at The Knox School is polite and seemingly looking after the best interests of the students.”
“I don’t like TKS – I LOVE it. All staff are friendly, kind and supporting. My children love going to school and feel safe there – that’s key for me!”
“The level of general excellence across the core learning requirements and the influence a few key staff have had on my child’s development.”

“As a result of my child attending The Knox School, I have a well-balanced, confident, polite and capable young adult entering the work force”
“My time here at The Knox School has been life-changing – the friendships I’ve made and the experiences I’ve had here have all taught me valuable lessons which will help me throughout my life and I will always remember this school as a place that helped me find who I am as a person”
“We believe moving our child to this school was the best thing for her. The teachers seem to have a real passion for teaching.”
“I can’t think of a better place to educate a student than The Knox School. I have watched my two sons grow into fine young men who are confident, mature, well-educated and who possess numerous skills that have been instilled by the teachers and staff and I am so proud and pleased with the wealth of experience they have gained from their time spent with you”
“I found your tour and presentation very professional. My wife and I toured [name withheld] after The Knox School tour and found it very disappointing after your presentation. Well done.”
“At the beginning of uni this year when everyone was asking each other about their school, my uni friends were always surprised by how dedicated and supportive my teachers were and I don’t think I truly appreciated how lucky I was to have had this till now and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them. To all of you I am truly grateful”
“We feel very fortunate to have had our children taught by such kind, caring, gifted and dedicated teachers”

“My mother is a resident of the Victoria Grange Aged Care facility. She recently received several visits from one of your students as part of your musical program.
I would just like to tell you how grateful I am for this wonderful program which has provided my mother with a variety to her routine, a re-connection with her love of music and a new friend.
[She] has spoken very highly of [your student], who has shown her compassion, generosity and friendship. As a retired kindergarten teacher, my mother particularly enjoyed visiting your school and watching the children’s singing performance.
Recently she returned to playing the piano, which she has not attempted to do since her stroke three years ago.
I just wanted to thank your staff for allowing my mother to be included in this program. It has been a very positive and powerful experience for her and I cannot thank you enough.”
“We are immensely proud of [his] achievements and the person he has become and we know that The Knox School, with its dedicated and caring staff have played a significant role in his development”
