Why bother with private schools in Markham when Susi – and all the Realtors at SusiHomes – already know where all the great, free public schools and great free Catholic schools are?? Just kidding – you have your reasons, of course.
But know this: We’ve done extensive research on the “free” schools in the Greater Toronto Area, all based on provincial test scores, school-district-specific demographics, and the consistency of performance. You can find our rankings and our informed opinions of the best public schools in Markham here, and also the best Catholic schools in Markham right here. Check them out!!
Yes, there are some benefits to looking up Markham private schools for your children. Private schooling does provide a lower teacher-to-student ratio, for example, and this is in spite of the lower pay private school teachers usually receive compared to their public school counterparts. The curriculum is usually more advanced than their public school counterparts, too. But naturally only a few can afford the fees.
Here are some of the private schools in Markham that we know about… (we can’t “rank” them, but we know about them!)
NOTE: If you are interested in buying a home closer to a particular private school, we can set up a convenient “radial search” for you around that school, and you’d still receive all the other benefits of our game-changing Complete Support for Homebuyers program! Contact us for more information.
