Best Toronto Schools 2012

ThanksTop Ten Logo-July 15 2011 to the fabulous Realosophy Analytics team, Realosophy.com is now updated with the latest EQAO scores released by the Province of Ontario for 2011-12.

To celebrate, here's the latest cut of one of Realosophy's most popular Top Ten Lists - Best Toronto Elementary Schools.

We're not surprised to see Don Valley Village make a huge splash on this list with 3 schools - we've been flagging this mid-priced neighbourhood as a great value investment to participants in our popular Schools for Home Buyers workshop for some time now.

Top Ten Toronto Schools - Elementary

Understanding the Data

    • The Province of Ontario's Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) scores (0-100%) indicate the number of students at or above the provincial standard in a subject based on 2011-12 test results.
    • Realosophy's overall score (in the bright yellow circle) represents an average of the six EQAO test scores written by students in 2011-12 (reading, writing and math at the Gr. 3 and Gr. 6 levels).
    • Covers all Toronto public schools including Catholic School Board (Note: some schools for which some EQAO results are not reported are excluded).
    • % Change indicates change in overall score from last year to the current year. (Editor Note: Correction Oct 10 11am - Earlier version of this blog post reported change over 3 years. Post has now been corrected).
    • Average house price for period of Jan to Aug 2012 (based on Toronto Real Estate Board data).
    • % Change indicates change in average house price from last year to the current year.
