Best Schools in Brampton

We get a lot of questions as to what are the best schools in Brampton. How are they ranked? Which schools are the best? And which schools are to be avoided?

Fortunately, today there are a number of organizations which provide rating information. This can help parents to determine the academic performance of their children’s schools.

Three of the most frequently asked questions that we get are:

Q: What is the best high school in Brampton?

A: Holy Name of Mary Catholic Secondary School has consistently ranked highest among all high schools in Brampton, scoring a strong 8.5 on the Fraser Institute ranking score.

See Holy Name of Mary Catholic Secondary School rankings below.

Q: What is the best elementary school in Brampton?

A: Al-Ameen Elementary School and Khalsa Community School both score a perfect 10 on their Fraser Institute rankings. Next is St. Agnes Separate School with a 9.6 score, and Ray Lawson Public School with 8.1

Q: Does Brampton have French immersion schools?

A: Yes, Brampton has plenty of excellent French immersion schools

Fraser Institute Rating System

The Fraser Institute is a leading source for school rankings in Canada. They are an independent international research and educational organization, headquartered in Vancouver, B.C.

They use a specific set of measurements to gauge elementary, middle, and high school academic performance for Brampton, and many other parts of Canada.

The Fraser Institute compilation of Ontario School rankings provides specific data on how students in various schools rate against each other, using defined and specific methodologies.

Their “Report Card” was last updated for high schools in 2019, and for elementary schools in early 2020.

Testing was put on pause during 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope to have updated numbers soon.

It ranks all participating schools in Ontario based on results using standardized tests in the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO).

Test results are ranked within a range up to a perfect score of 10, and these results are then compared to previous years’ scores as well as previous years’ rankings.

Schools are then given a numeric rank based upon their students’ test scores.


Many educators are quick to point out that an academic test such as used by the Fraser Institute is only one measure of school performance.

Peter Cowley, co-author of the report,  has acknowledged that these test scores are only one method of measurement in trying to determine any school’s effectiveness.

“On the other hand, this report card says nothing about fine arts, athletics, french immersion, or how schools develop leadership and citizenship among their students. This will tell parents how students are doing in areas of basic skills in which the province tests them.”

The Brampton school rankings also allow parents to monitor any significant trends for increases or decreases in the test scores, Cowley said.

Accordingly, despite the caveat from many observers that the Report is only a single measure of any school’s effectiveness, parents can nevertheless gain some insight as to the academic credentials of Brampton’s schools, and how they measure up against each other.

Brampton Elementary School Rankings

St Joseph Elementary School Brampton

There are about 150 public, catholic, and private Brampton elementary schools

The Fraser Institute’s most recent findings on Brampton elementary school rankings and middle school ratings were released in January, 2020, and are based on 2018/2019 grade 3 and grade 6 EQAO results.

When test results between schools ended in a rating tie, school rank is shown as an equal rank (left column).

Some schools are not listed due to not offering both grades 3 & 6.

The following list is a summary of Brampton elementary school rankings, including public and separate (Catholic) school rankings.

Certain private school rankings are not available due to lack of participation in the EQAO tests. The exclusion of a school should in no way be construed as a judgement of the school’s effectiveness.

There are 2 top elementary schools in Brampton that have a perfect score of 10 in academics: the Al-Ameen school, and the Khalsa Community School.

These two schools also score among the top schools in the Greater Toronto area, and indeed, in all of Ontario. Academically, they are definitely among the best elementary schools in Brampton.
