Waterloo Region School Rankings 2009-2010

calvinA few months ago, I wrote a blog  “Where are the best schools in Kitchener Waterloo?” about the rankings of the public and catholic schools, both elementary and secondary in Waterloo Region. School rankings are very important to some people. I’m one of them. More than a decade ago when I moved, with my young family, to Kitchener Waterloo and we chose to live in Westmount/Uptown because we discovered in our own home search that Empire School was the best school in the region.

It was a wise choice back then and it’s a wise choice today.

School rankings don’t change radically from year to year. There are sometimes boundary changes, which affect the scores and new schools opening can change a lot as they settle into a neighborhood and the neighborhood settles around them.


Update: Where are the best schools (2013)


That said, here are links to the top schools.

The Fraser Institute

The Fraser Institute is an independent Canadian public policy research and educational organization with active research ties with similar independent organizations in more than 75 countries around the world. Throughout their exploration of issues that affect citizens, the Fraser Institute attempts to discuss complex economic subjects in a manner that can be easily understood by everyone.

In order to improve public institutions such as schools, their performance needs to be measured. With the Frazier Institute’s research into the performance of Canadian schools, you can compare the performance of your local school to those in other communities. This helps you make more informed choices and points to areas in which these institutions can improve.
