The 2024 Lakeshore school ranking represents an opinion of ours based upon hundreds of hours of research with the end-goal of determining where, exactly, the “best” schools in the Burlington area ARE for young families.
Almost every other Ontario real estate website uses the “Fraser Institute rankings”, but these rankings can pose many problems for young families. Our rankings are far more integrated with the consistency and the “teacher support” a school receives – both HUGE factors – as well as EQAO Performance.
SusiHomes classifies schools (for our clients) into the following four groups:
With the SUSI Rankings we help our clients find the best school/home/neighbourhood combination possible!
Lakeshore EQAO Performance & Consistency (2024)
The EQAO performance for Lakeshore is recorded each possible year (that is, when EQAO testing hasn’t been cancelled due to COVID or work action) at SusiHomes and turned into the figures in the graphic you see here. These become the EQAO calculations used to determine our final annual rankings. A “consistency factor” is then assigned to Lakeshore based on how dependable the school has been over the last seven EQAO years, and then all numbers are mixed with Teacher Support (below) calculations before producing a final ranking. See a more detailed explanation of how we determine our rankings here.
Lakeshore Teacher Support (2024)
Median Income ($$) – 87.8K
Single Parents – 15.8%
University Degree – 43.1%
High School or Less – 23.5%
ESL – 22%
The Teacher Support receives at Lakeshore is critical to determining its final ranking. Exactly what we mean by this is laid out here, but in a nutshell, if a school rises above their demographical expectations, they then can be considered a more worthy school, than others, for the attention of young family purchasers.
Lakeshore Demographics (2024)
Our exclusive School-District-Specific DEMOGRAPHICS are available to ALL HomeBuyers at SusiHomes, and they include Income Levels, Religions, Single Parents, Languages Spoken, and much more. These are demographics ONLY within the school district itself!!
For an example, see an overview of the ethnic and religious diversity for Lakeshore in the graphic to the left.
The Lakeshore ranking at SusiHomes is heavily influenced by these demographics we have (the Fraser Rankings are not). See the Potency Rankings on this page for a detailed explanation of this invaluable process.
What is the SCHOOL RANKING for Lakeshore in 2024?
The Lakeshore school ranking from SusiHomes is the most reliable ranking in the region, in our opinion, and all rankings are available to our clients. When considering the best schools in Burlington, these rankings heavily influence our recommendations.
HOWEVER, not all well-ranked schools are recommended to our clients, and there are certainly MISTAKES that young families make when searching for homes in good school districts that should be avoided.
We help our clients eliminate these mistakes with our school classifications: Premium Recommendations, Alternate Recommendations, Tertiary Recommendations, and Not Recommended – Lakeshore falls into one of these categories. As a preview, you can see the Top 5 Public elementary schools in the Burlington area here.
