How we determine the Best Schools for you!

We provide you with the highest rated schools based off the standings of the Fraser Institute. The Fraser institute uses many resources and takes into account plenty of data to create a very reliable source of information and rating for the best ranked schools in the GTA and varying areas. 


The Fraser Institute uses EQAO test results from each school over the past 5 years. The EQAO tests are conducted in Grades 3, 6, 9 (math) and 10 (literacy), grades 3 and 6 both complete math, reading and writing. 

Obviously not every school has been around for 5 or more years thus they would not have a sufficient amount of data for clear rankings. The Fraser Institute only bases their findings off certain indicators although there is always a lot more to consider when you are finding the perfect school for your children. 

So it is important to take into account that the ratings from the Fraser Institute are simply a general guideline as to how each school is performing.
