School Rankings Report Card for Niagara, St. Catharines and surrounding areas

The Frasier Institute produces annual report cards for many of the Public and Catholic Schools in the Province of Ontario, here is a little highlight for the Niagara Region.

Which School Ranked the Highest for the Niagara Region?

St. Edward Catholic School in Jordon ranked 51 out of the 2,786 schools tested in the Province. 

Virgil School ranked an impressive 63, however in the next 2 years Virgil is expected to be consolidated with the nearby Col. John Butler School in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  

Virgil tied with Michael J. Brennan Catholic School in St. Catharines in the rankings.  That's an accomplishment when considering the great number of schools tested.

Parents are urged to use this type of school rankings report as a guideline only and simply refer to the report as "one of many sources" to assess their children's school.   Parents are encouraged to visit their local schools, talk to the teachers and principal.  Visit the schools individual website and check out their activities and get a feel of the spirit and goals of the school.   Local communities also play an important part in our children’s lives, with extra activities offered at community centres, churches, social clubs, just to name a few. 

SCHOOL SCORES:   The Frasier Institute ranks schools on a scale of 0 to 10.   Keep in mind that the provincial average was 6 with the highest score earned by the York's Catholic and public boards earning 7.4 and 7.1.

How the Report Works:   It Ranks Schools by academic performance for an over rating out of 10.  It covers a 5 year period starting from 2003.  In some cases the report will provide a trend indicator, whether there has been an overall improvement or decline in performance.
