2015 Elementary School Rankings

This April, the Fraser Institute published its annual 2013/2014 rankings for 3,023 Elementary Schools in Ontario. The rankings are based in part of the results of Education Quality and Accountability Office testing.

The province wide EQAO testing evaluates proficiency in both English and Mathematics in Grades 3 and 6. French Immersion students receive English testing beginning in Grade 6.

While the Fraser Institute rankings can have an effect on property values located within the school boundaries of the top schools, they should be considered as one of many factors in selecting a school. You should also contact the school board and speak directly with the school’s principal to gain a fuller understanding of what the school has to offer in the way of student life, arts and character development. While private schools are not required to administer the EQAO tests, the ones that have are included in the Fraser Institute rankings.

The overall 2013/2014 average score for the province's 3023 elementary schools is 6.0. 

Markham is home to 17 schools that are in the province's top 100 (3.3%) ranking for 2013/2014. The difference between the #1 school (10.0) and the #100 school (8.8) is 1.2.

St. Justin Martyr (#1), Randall (#14),  William Berczy (#24), Henderson Avenue (#24), Stonebridge (#27), Castlemore (#27), As-Sadiq Islamic (#36), St. Benedict (#56), John McCrae (#63), Donald Cousens (#63), Buttonville (#74), Bayview Fairways (#74), St. Rene Goupil-St. Luke (#74), Bayview Glen (#84), Blessed John XXIII (#84), Coledale (#100) and Lincoln Alexander (#100). 

Markham boasts another 30 schools in the top 495 schools (16.4%). The difference between the #125 school (8.6) and the #495 school (7.6) is 1.0. 

Parkview (#125), Ellen Fairclough (#125), St. Patrick (#125), All Saints (#149), St. Monica (#149), Wismer (#172), St. Michael (#172), Sir John A MacDonald (#172), ​Sainte-Marguerite-Bourgeoys (#204), Central Park (#238), Johnsview Village (#238), Boxwood (#276), Unionville Meadows (#276), Bakersfield (#276), Sir Richard W.

Crowle (#445), Mount Joy (#445), Black Walnut (#445), Westminster (#445), Mother Teresa (#495), Legacy (#495).  

It is important to keep the annual rankings in context. A lower score in a single year may be due to a number of factors. The five year rankings for the province's 2348 schools will tend to even out the annual fluctuations with 17 schools in Markham scoring in the province's top 100 schools (5.1%). The difference between the #1 school (10.0) and the #100 school (8.4) is 1.6.

St. Justin Martyr (#1), William Berczy (#5), Sainte-Marguerite-Bourgeoys (#16), Henderson Avenue (#16), Roy H Crosby (#23), Coledale (#23), Stonebridge (#23), John McCrae (#34), Castlemore (#34), Lincoln Alexander (#57), Buttonville (#57), Parkview (#72), Randall (#85), San Lorenzo Ruiz (#98), Central Park (#98), St. Patrick (#98) and Ellen Fairclough (#98),

Markham is also home to an additional 27 schools that have consistently ranked in the top 470 schools (14.8%). The difference between the #123 school (8.3) and the #467 school (7.3) is 1.0.
