Best Public Schools in HamiltonThe public school rankings in Hamilton is a list that concerned parents with young families seek out to determine what the “best” schools in Hamilton are these days. From Allan A. Greenleaf in Waterdown to Eastdale in Stoney Creek, to all the way over to Spring Valley in Ancaster, 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 Norwood Park or Michaelle Jean. 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 Gatestone at #11, and Janet Lee at #13 – these ones here are only the ones in the Top 5. And this a great start to determining, for our young families, what the best schools in Hamilton really are (in our informed opinions).

Here are the top elementary schools for the 2024 SUSI Rankings for public schools in the city of Hamilton:

About the Hamilton School Rankings

On our website, we have school rankings for:
Mississauga and Brampton
Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, Georgetown and Hamilton
Etobicoke and the West End/High Park area
Vaughan, Markham, and Richmond Hill

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 Hamilton’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!

Hamilton School Rankings 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 Hamilton Public school district for them to live in. We publish our opinion of the Top 5 Public Elementary Schools in Hamilton 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.
