Understanding School Rankings: More Than Just Numbers

Let’s kick things off with a little chat about the Fraser Institute’s School Rankings. 

These folks are like the Michelin stars of schools, giving you the lowdown on academic performance. But here’s the kicker: a school is more than its report card. 

It’s about the vibe, the extracurriculars, the community… you get the gist. So, while we’ll give you the academic scoop, remember to check out those school fairs, chat up Mr. Smith at the school gate, and maybe even sneak into a PTA meeting (or just ask nicely) to get the real feel.

Below you can find the Fraser Institute School Ranking For Burlington’s Top Schools:
