The Fraser Institute’s Report Card on Ontario Schools provides Oakville parents an idea of where their children’s school ranks against the rest.

The Report, released in 2008, ranks all schools in Ontario based on their results in the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) standardized tests. A score out of 10 is given and compared to previous years’ scores as well as previous years’ rankings.

“Of course this would only be one source of information for parents,” said Peter Cowley, Director of School Performance Studies for the Fraser Institute and co-author of the report.

“This report card says nothing about fine arts, physical education or how schools develop leadership and citizenship amongst their kids. This will tell parents how students are doing in areas of basic skills in which the province tests them.”

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

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