The Fraser Institute School Rankings (2017 – 2018 rating) have been released.


Fraser Instute Report Card on Ontario’s Elementary Schools

This year’s Report Card ranks more than 3,000 anglophone and francophone public and Catholic schools (and a small number of independent schools) based on nine academic indicators from results of annual provincewide reading, writing and math tests.

The Fraser Insitute Report Card on Ontario’s Elementary Schools 2019 collects a variety of relevant, objective indicators of school performance.

The Fraser Institute states on its web site that the act of publicly rating and ranking schools attracts attention, and this can provide motivation. It claims schools that perform well or show consistent improvement are applauded while poorly performing schools generate concern, as do those whose performance is deteriorating. The results of the report cart creates public attention and that in turn provides an incentive for all those connected with a school to focus on student results.

“However, the Report Card offers more than just incentive. It includes a variety of indicators, each of which reports results for an aspect of school performance that may be improved. School administrators who are dedicated to their students’ academic success accept the Report Card as another source of opportunities for improvement.”
