bc best schools

 

The Fraser Institute has released their "report card" on BC elementary schools for 2013.  The report is made up of 853 schools all over BC with 6 of the top 10 elementary schools in the City of Vancouver.  It comes as no surprise really since this is mainly due to the fact that quality of education is typically tied to property prices.  The rankings are based on the results of the FSA (Foundation Skills Assessment) testing children in Grades 4-7 in reading, writing and numeracy.  For the full report, click here:
