Comparing Toronto Secondary Schools

 Compare Toronto Secondary School Results

Almost as important as finding the perfect home is ensuring that your family has access to a great secondary education. I was recently showing a Toronto home to a buyer during a public open house and the selling agent was proud to inform us the local high school was great. OK, I’LL BITE. So I asked “What makes it so great”? Standing in the door way in her Armani suit she announced that the seller’s 3 children graduated almost 10 years ago and they loved the school. So let me see if I get this correct, they are basing this evaluation on some subjective 10 year old high school experience. What did I say? Of course, I corrected her with the hard evidence that the school consistently ranked consistently in the bottom 5% of Toronto secondary schools for the last 5 years. My buyers gave this house a failing grade. Whether you are buying or selling a poorly performing school was certainly not going to be a positive contributing factor to overall neighbourhood property values. Now, lets say the school was rated within the top 5% then I would be shouting to any one who came in the door this fabulous news.

There are a myriad of factors to consider when purchasing a home and for those buyers and sellers who have worked with me know that I have an exhaustive check list. Let me share one of my favourites which is a report put together by the Fraser Institute. As parents most of us are very familar with the yearly EQAO testing for secondary student in grades 9 and 10. In researching a specific high school we would check the school’s website and from reviewing the most recent EQAO results get a benchmark of the individual school. What the Fraser Institute has done is provide Toronto residents is a school by school chart and rates them from highest to lowest. This has been a great tool for my clients and I just think it was time that others benefit from my experience.
