Best Public Schools in BramptonIf you’re a concerned parent looking for a really great district for your children to live in, unfortunately Brampton has fewer places than other cities that might qualify as “great school districts”. Along with Milton, they have struggled to produce schools that have excellent pass-rates on the EQAO test scores the Ontario government establishes every year for all publicly-funded schools in the province. However, the good news is that I have seen some improvement over the last four years, and I hope this trend continues.

Perhaps it can be argued that in Brampton, much of this can be attested to lower-than-average household income levels and the large numbers of recent immigrants and ESL students in their schools. Perhaps not. It’s certainly up for debate. Brampton has two “balanced calendar” schools that fare well, comparatively, EQAO-wise, than other schools, and now the Peel Board has plans to add more balanced-calendar schools in the future.

For some parents, Brampton is their only option, and parts of Brampton are really quite beautiful. And when they look around for Brampton school rankings, it may be hard to find. The Fraser Institute is an unreliable source for Brampton parents because they neglect public schools that only go up to Grade 5, and more than half of Brampton’s public schools do exactly that – they only go up to Grade 5 and thus the Fraser Institute cannot rank them.

This is part of the reason why I created the SUSI Rankings, which started in Mississauga for the same reason (they have the same JK-5 “problem”), and now involves heavy research into a school’s consistency in EQAO pass-rates over the years… and also how well a school is expected to perform given their district demographics.



Which Public schools in Brampton does SusiHomes recommend?

We have Premium Recommendations, Alternate Recommendations, Tertiary Recommendations, and schools that we do not recommend at all. Recommendations are based on: Rankings, neighbourhood, any “news” we may hear about the school, and also the future middle and high schools for the district.

Where can I find the full list of Brampton Public school rankings?

Full rankings and Recommendations are now exclusively available to all of Susi’s clients for their personal use. Our EQAO calculations, Teacher Support rankings, and Diversity numbers, however, are still available for most Brampton Public elementary schools, and those schools can be found here.

How do I find a home in a recommended school district?

It’s simple. When looking for a great home in a great school district, not only do rankings have to be measured, but also quality and safety of the neighbourhood, and of course the happiness YOU feel with your home! When you have a young family, there is so much to consider.

About the Brampton School Rankings

On our website, we have school rankings for:
Mississauga and Brampton
Oakville, Burlington, Milton, 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 Brampton’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!

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