Here's how Delta's elementary schools rank, according to Fraser Institute

None of the Delta school district’s elementary schools cracked the top 200 in the Fraser Institute’s latest rankings.

The Fraser Institute Thursday released its annual rankings of 955 B.C. public and private elementary schools, The Report Card on British Columbia’s Elementary Schools 2019, comparing academic performances based on several factors derived from the province-wide Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) results.

“The report card offers parents information they can’t easily get anywhere else, about how their child’s school performs over time and compares to other schools in B.C.,” said Angela MacLeod, a senior policy analyst at the Fraser Institute.

Contrary to common misconceptions, the data suggest every school is capable of improvement regardless of type, location and student characteristics, the institute states.

The rankings, as usual, had private schools at the top with Delta’s Southpointe rated the best school in city, ranked 66th overall for the 2017/2018 school year, and having a rating of 8.8 out of 10. The top Delta public school was Devon Gardens, ranked at 215 overall and having a personal rating of 7.1.

The rankings have long dismissed by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, while the Delta school board has also dismissed them as not providing an accurate representation of what’s really going on in schools and how schools are really doing.
