New school rankings!

The Fraser Institute school ranking have been released and Pleasant Park PS has moved up the scale considerably!

Congrats!

I am not a huge fan of these rankings (nor of the Fraser Institute.. in fact, everything else they publish outside of these rankings is little more than drivel), but I do think there is some real analytical value in the period over period trends.

Read a previous post I wrote on the value of these rankings.

You can find the Pleasant Park profile here

Here are the rankings for the OCDSB Elementary schools.

As a sidenote, I wonder how the FI determines the “trend”. In theory, PPPS should have an upward triangle beside it…

    It is interesting having just gone through the process in Elmvale/Alta Vista of registering for JK. Riverview Alternative isn’t showing on the list.

    Thanks for the link. Interesting that my daughter’s school (an OCDSB one) is not listed. I wonder if it’s because they split their population with a new school this year, or if it’s just an error.
