Ottawa's Top High Schools – 2007 Fraser Report Ratings – Choosing a good location for your home often entails locating near the best schools. How do you find out where they are? That's not an easy process but the 2007 Fraser Institute report is out and has made an attempt at rating the high schools across Ontario including Ottawa. Note that some private schools do not provide data so may not be rated and note reports in the articles that Ontario doesn't collect as much relevant data as do some of the other provinces.
Here are some of the highlights of the report as well as links to the full reports.
|Ottawa High Schools||Overall Rating|
|Colonel By, Gloucester||9.0|
|West Carleton, Dunrobin||8.9|
|Earl of March, Kanata||8.7|
|John McCrae, Nepean||8.4|
|A. Y. Jackson, Kanata||8.2|
|St. Peter, Orleans||8.1|
|De La Salle, Ottawa||8.0|
|Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Orleans||8.0|
