WHILE the Gold Coast may have dominated a new online School's Guide in the NAPLAN results, four Warwick schools soared above the state average with the other 12 not far behind.

The interactive site gives people the opportunity to compare schools across Queensland, based on student and teacher performance, attendance rates, enrolments and overall results.

Maryvale State School achieved the best overall result in the region, with an average Index of Community Socio-educational Advantage, IC SEA, of 1015, with the state average 1000.

Scots PGC College came in second for Warwick, with an average of 1009 and above average attendance rates and enrolment numbers.

Freestone State School came in third with an IC SEA of 1002 and a 96% attendance rate.

Principal Laura Watson said she was pleased to see the school had achieved a commendable result.

"It's fantastic. The work we've put in has paid off," Mrs Watson said.

"We have a good combination of parent support, kids and teachers."

She said it was a reflection of the school's focus on individual development and each student's needs.

"I know we're only a small school, but that's why we can do what we do," Mrs Watson said.

In fourth place, was St Mary's Primary School, exceeding the IC SEA average by one point.

Of all Warwick schools, Warwick High School had the most enrolments but the lowest attendance rate.
