In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
The Fraser Institute: 167 Elementary Schools Across Ontario Score Improvement in Fraser Institute School Rankings

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/17/13 -- Across Ontario, 167 elementary schools showed significant improvement in their academic performance over the past five years, according to the Fraser Institute's annual school rankings.

Of these improving elementary schools, 64 are in the GTA, 44 in Southwestern Ontario, 36 in North Central Ontario, and 23 in Eastern Ontario, highlighting the fact that school improvement is happening in all regions of the province.

"This is why the Fraser Institute school report card is the go-to source for measuring academic improvement: it highlights school success stories from Murillo in the west to Cornwall in the east and from Timmins in the north to Windsor in the south," said Peter Cowley, Fraser Institute director of school performance studies.

"Our report shows that all schools are capable of improvement, regardless of the personal or family challenges their students might face. If educators want to help students learn and improve, they should be talking to these schools."

The Report Card on Ontario's Elementary Schools 2013 rates 2,714 public, Catholic, and francophone elementary schools based on nine academic indicators using data from the annual provincewide tests of reading, writing, and math administered by the Ontario government's Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO).

"By pinpointing the subject areas in which individual schools are improving or declining and how their academic performance compares to that of other Ontario schools over the past five years, our report helps parents and educators prioritize learning challenges in their schools," Cowley said.

The report card also includes important information about each school's make-up, including parents' average income, the percentage of ESL students, and the percentage of special needs students.

The complete results for all 2,714 elementary schools will also be available at where visitors can compare schools on their results over the last five years.

Of the 20 Ontario elementary schools showing the fastest academic improvement over the past five years, 10 are public schools where the parental income is below average. At eight of those schools, special needs students account for more than 30 per cent of school enrolment. The complete list follows.

"We all want the best possible education for our children. To achieve this, every Ontario school should make improvement Job 1," Cowley said.
