In Tasmania, Government schools are called public schools and the school your children attend will be determined by where you live. Fee paying schools are called private or independent schools, with fees varying between schools, although in general they charge significantly less than in other parts of Australia.

Following is a list of all schools in the Launceston area, with links to school websites.
