St. Joachim Rankings

St. Joachim Catholic School, Ancaster

Last updated on May 18, 2024 by SUSI KOSTYNIUK

GRADES K-8
(“Hamilton Catholic” Rankings)

The 2024 St. Joachim 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 Hamilton 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:
Premium Recommendations
Alternate Recommendations
Tertiary Recommendations
Not Recommended

With the SUSI Rankings we help our clients find the best school/home/neighbourhood combination possible!

St. Joachim EQAO Performance & Consistency (2024)

St. Joachim EQAO Ancaster

The EQAO performance for St. Joachim 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 St. Joachim 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.
