I live in Kinross and my daughter goes to the primary school. It has got a vey good reputation and she is doing very well there. My only complaint really would be the size of it. It goes from kindy to year 5 and there are over 500 kids there so very hard to get a community feel there. That is purely my opinion, others may feel differently.
The college has had issues in the past, behaviour, lack of good teachers. My older 2 did go there for 2 terms in 2008/2009 but I was very unhappy with it and they have since changed schools. Other people I have spoken to are 50/50 some happy, some not. They are getting a new principal this year and hopefully things will improve. I personally wouldn't send my children there but the alternative (unless private) is slim pickings!
Not sure about catchment area but I think you definitely have to live in Kinross or Burns Beach for the primary school.
Hope this helps you.
