School rankings according to Fraser Institute

When it comes to how well elementary and high schools do in Nipissing, it takes a while before a school with a reasonable ranking shows up.   At least, that’s according to the Fraser Institute which ranked Ontario’s schools in its annual report.  The right wing think tank rated 3064 elementary schools and the first one in Nipissing that shows up is St. Gregory in Powassan which is rated 852th.  That rating puts the school among the top 28 percent of elementary schools in Ontario.   The next Nipissing District schools to place on the list are Ste. Raymond and Vincent Massey both in North Bay which are tied for 986th spot.  The fourth area school on the list is South Shore Education which occupies place number 1,059.

Fraser found that the lowest rated school in Nipissing is Ste. Anne which is only 16 places from the last spot in 3,048th.  When tabulating its results, the institute looked at publicly available data including provincial testing.   However the lobby group also says not all schools were ranked if needed information was not available.

With high schools, West Ferris Secondary School finished nearly in the top third, placing 243rd out of 740 high schools.  St. Joseph Scollard Hall isn’t too far behind with a 279th place showing followed by Algonquin which takes the 318th spot.  The high schools that are further down the list are Almaguin in South River which is 699th and North Bay’s O’dyssee in 707th spot.  In Sturgeon Falls, Northern under the Near North board is in 710th spot followed by E.S. Northern from C.S.D. du Nord-Est de l’Ontario’s which comes in at 723rd.
