Schools and Real Estate – why it matters
Having a home in a catchment area for the best schools increases the value and demand of your property at the same time your child gets a great education. Win-win.
How can I find out what schools are highly rated?
The individual connection between your child and teacher is always the most important to help them reach their full potential. However, knowing that your child is attending a school with like-minded parents and children can help to ease your anxiety in choosing a school where your child will thrive. There are standardized tests in Reading, Writing and Math conducted in Grade 3, Grade 6 and in Grade 9 in the Province of Ontario. The Fraser Institute compiles the results of these tests along with other data and demographic information and provides ratings for the elementary and secondary schools in Ontario. Compiled below are the highest-rated schools provided in the Fraser Institute report for the areas that Santino specializes – Etobicoke, Downtown Toronto & King West/Liberty Village.
