Etobicoke School Rankings: Etobicoke’s Best Schools
The public school rankings in Etobicoke is a list that concerned parents with young families seek out to determine what the “best” schools in Etobicoke are these days. From John D. Parker in Smithfield down to Park Lawn in Sunnylea, to all the way over to Millwood in Markland Wood, there are a number of intriguing options to choose from for English-track schooling in this city. But perhaps you may be looking for a French Immersion school like Rosethorn or John English. And are you supposed to worry about high schools at this point when your children may not even be in Grade 2 yet? There is so much to consider!
Furthermore, it’s possible that the schools that accomplished the best EQAO pass-rates last year (which is how the Fraser Institute groups their rankings by default, but not us) might NOT be the “best” school for your child, overall. Because not only does consistency have to be measured, but also the happiness the parent feels with their home! This is just the beginning of the things we consider when finding a home in a great neighbourhood for our young family clients.
We have rankings for all the public elementary schools in this city – including Norseman at #16, and Eatonville at #24 – these ones here are only the ones in the Top 10. And this a great start to determining, for our young families, what the best schools in Etobicoke really are (in our informed opinions). Here are the top elementary schools for the 2017 SUSI Rankings for public schools in the city of Etobicoke:

Again, of all the ranked public schools in Etobicoke – these are only the ones in the Top Ten. But after looking over these rankings, perhaps you might be surprised of how many of these schools on the full list that we actually recommend to the concerned parents that make up the majority of our clients.
On our website, we have school rankings for Toronto, Scarborough, and North York, as well as for Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville, Milton, Georgetown, Burlington, Vaughan, Markham, Richmond Hill, and York Region North including Aurora & Newmarket elsewhere on the site.
The rankings here are the amalgamation of two separate reports we have compiled: SUSI’s 7-year EQAO Rankings and SUSI’s Potency Rankings.
SUSI’s 7-year EQAO Rankings are mostly self-explanatory. In order to measure the consistency of a school’s performance, we compiled the scores from the last 7 years of EQAO scores for each of Etobicoke’s public schools. The more recent the year, the more weight that year’s EQAO scores were given.
SUSI’s Potency Rankings attempt to measure how well a school’s principals and teachers are performing vis-a-vis how well they are EXPECTED to perform, given their district’s socio-economic lot. In other words, schools in districts that have parents with a higher-than-average income and education level, and that have less ESL students and single parents, are EXPECTED to perform better than their less-fortunate counterparts. If a school isn’t performing up to expectation, that should be noted. Likewise, if a school is performing well ABOVE expectation, that should also not just be noted, but congratulated!
The combination of these two studies (along with a “consistency factor”) provide us with the crucial information we need to help young families find the best Etobicoke school district for them to live in. We publish our opinion of the Best 20 Public Elementary Schools in Etobicoke a couple months after we determine them for ourselves – but of course the full version of the latest rankings are always available for counsel towards our current home-seeking clients.
There are 51 public elementary schools in Etobicoke. Do you need your family to be in a recommended school district? What kind of neighbourhood are you looking for? How about a French Immersion schooling – is that for you? What about high schools??
How about the district itself? What are the demographics of that district? We are the only Realtors in Etobicoke that have specific demographics for EACH, INDIVIDUAL district. This kind of information might be very useful to young, home-seeking parents.
There’s a lot to navigate out there – start here, perhaps? And if you’re looking to buy a home in Etobicoke, we’d be happy to help and to protect your family. :-)
