School Rankings UPDATE  - Oct 23, 2014

The 2015 rankings for Oakville and Mississauga how now been completed, and are now available to my clients. Other areas in the GTA are on their way.

There are four major improvements to my 2015 Rankings that I am hoping makes more reliable than ever for my clients and those are here:
1. I have eliminated the French Immersion student extraction as I felt it unjustly punished the schools that have a high French Immersion enrolment.
2. I have theoretically extracted the Special Education student scores from the rankings. I have obtained the average SpecEd student level in each of the tested subjects, and also have the SpecEd enrolment numbers for each school. Thus, the ranking now reflects the true pass-rates for all non-SpecEd students, in my opinion.
3. I have changed from a Pass/Fail system to a more-comprehensive “Levels” system. The Pass/Fail system only counts how many students are Passing (Levels 3 and 4) and how many students are Failing (Levels 2 and 1). Now, I am integrating the actual Levels the students are achieving in each school.
4. I am assigning more weight to the “consistency” each school achieves over the course of time, as I feel this is the best indicator of how the school will be performing 5 years from now.

These rankings should be made available on this website starting in January, eventually being completed in mid-2015. If you need the full rankings before then because you need to move to a recommended school district, please consider contacting me to represent your best interests as your Realtor.

Besides a tonne of experience, I can also offer school-district-specific demographics, and a free home inspection for the home you purchase. There are many other things to consider when purchasing a home in a great school district, as well. Let my hard work, full communication, complete honesty and invaluable experience be your guide.

You should never contact the Listing Realtor to buy a home because his/her first responsibility is towards their seller. You should always protect yourself and retain the services of a Qualified Buying Agent experienced in negotiating for homes in recommended school districts – like Susi, of course!
