Wagga secondary teachers and parents are confident students are receiving the best education and opportunities to succeed, despite no schools ranking in the state's top 150.
According to the NSW Education Standards Authority, Kildare Catholic College is the highest ranked secondary school in the city, placed at 174.
Kildare year 10 commerce teacher Lindsay Loke said the overwhelming support teachers receive could be the reason for the school's success.
"I receive an incredible amount of support both for my wellbeing and professional development," she said.
"The professional development I receive is research driven and current and I'm supported to deliver it in the classroom."
Angus McKelvie-Hill graduated from The Riverina Anglican College last year, with a close to perfect ATAR, and is now studying at a university in Canberra.
His parents Isaac Hill and Tracy McKelvie-Hill said they were happy with the support their son received at TRAC.
"Yeah I am happy with TRAC, ultimately because he was happy with it and he probably gained as much productivity as he was going to anywhere," Mr Hill said.
"He was always around friends and sport and because he was able to live at home, he was happy."
Ms McKelvie-Hill said they looked at sending Angus to boarding school in Sydney but wanted him to have a network of support.
"The relationships TRAC teachers built with the kids impacted on how they performed as they were treated like adults and got the best out of it," she said.
"We looked at a few schools and we chose TRAC because it was comfortable and provided Angus with our values, as well as a range of academic, but also sporting and cultural opportunities too.
"I think for us, we looked at sending Angus to boarding school but we thought having family support was more important than what a boarding school would have provided."
Ms McKelvie-Hill said it was hard to comment about whether there was a gap in regional and city education.
NSW Teacher's Federation Wagga councillor Cameron Abood said students and their needs are met individually.
"We work with the students and cater to improve every student's learning outcomes and those that need additional support with all types of learning programs," Mr Abood said.
"Teachers do an amazing job and differentiate to make learning accessible for everybody."
While Mr Abood said he had not seen the schools in the top 150, he said there is often a gap between regional and city education.
"Without knowing what the top 150 schools are, they might be selective and a lot of these private schools in Sydney are resourced well above the minimum standards of what students should be receiving, but it's hard to compare apples and oranges," he said.
