In the past nine years, the all-boys school has a 100% record of students getting into third level, with 82% of those getting into universities. That is closely followed by the capital's best performer Mount Anville School in Goatstown, South Dublin.
In the nine years of data, the all-girls school also has a 100% record of students securing college places.
And 80% of those students got into a university, just shy of Presentation's figure.
Cistercian College finished third on the list followed by two Dublin schools, St Mary's College, Rathmines and Blackrock College, Blackrock. As for non-fee paying schools, Colaiste Iosagain in Stillorgan, Dublin, is the best in the entire country.
