Annual report card gives high marks to east end elementary schools
By Fred Sherwin
Orléans Online

East end elementary schools are among the most successful in the province according to the most recent Report Card on Ontario's Elementary Schools compiled by the Vancouver-based Fraser Institute.

Of the 31 area French and English public and Catholic schools included in this year's report, 14 saw at least 85 per cent of their students either meet or exceed the provincial average on the 2012 EQAO province-wide tests in reading, writing and math. Of the 14, at least 90 per cent of the students at nine schools either met or exceeded the provincial average.

École élémentaire publique Le Prélude topped the list with 95.2 per cent of its students either meeting or exceeding the provincial average. Four other French-language schools filled out the top five, including École élémentaire publique L'Odyssé in Convent Glen which received a score of 8.6 out of 10 from the Fraser Institue, tying it with Chapel Hill Catholic School as the highest ranked schools in Orléans.

École élémentaire catholique Étolie de l'Est in Chapel Hill is ranked third with an 8.4 rating, Le Prélude is fourth on the list at 8.3, and Convent Glen Catholic, École élémentaire catholique Ste-Marie in Blackburn Hamlet and École élémentaire catholique St-Joseph d'Orléans are all tied for fifth with a 7.9 rating.

Maple Ridge Elementary School is the top Ottawa District School Board school on the list at number nine with a 7.6 rating. Trillium Elementary School is two spots down with a 7.1 rating and Fallingbrook Elementary school received a score of 7.1, placing it 12th on the list. It's important to note, however, that six area public board schools did not make the Report Card due to insuffient data including Forest Valley, Terry Fox, an Convent Glen Public.

The most improved score belonged to École élémentaire catholique Ste-Marie which received a 5.5 rating in 2011. Trillium also did well, improving their score from 5.5 out of 10 in 2011 to 7.1.

École élémentaire catholique Arc-en-Ciel went in the opposite direction dropping 7.8 to 5.3

The Report Card lists standardized-test results in reading, writing and math for Grades 3 and 6 from 2006 to 2012 and then uses the data to rate and rank the 2,714 elementary schools included in the study.

Of the top 10 schools in Ottawa, L'Odyssé and Chapel Hill are ranked ninth and 10th respectively.

The scores are based on a combination of factors including the results of last year’s EQAO scores in reading, writing and math for Grades 3 and 6; the gap between the male and female results (the wider gap the lower the score); and the percentage of students who failed to meet the minimum provincial standard.

Overall, 22 of the 31 east end schools scored above the provincial average which was 6.0. As a group the English Catholic board schools received an average mark of 6.5, while the English public board schools received an average mark of 6.4. By comparison, the 10 French Catholic board schools received an average mark of of 6.6 and the five French public board schools received an average mark of 7.6.

The scores for the 31 east end schools included in the report are listed in the colour coded chart below. The full report card can be viewed at www.fraserinstitute.ca.
