Perley comes out as top elementary school in Boundary
The top elementary school in the Boundary is Dr. D. A. Perley Elementary School according to the Fraser Institute, which released its annual report, Feb.14.
Perley ranked 388 out of 956 schools with a score of 6.3 out of 10. This is up from the previous year when Perley scored 555.
Also in Grand Forks, John A. Hutton ranked 874 out of 956, a decrease from last year's 405 with a score of 3.7 out of 10.
Over in Rock Creek, the West Boundary Elementary School rated 755 for a score of 4.6 out of 10. The previous years were not listed on the site.
Christina Lake Elementary School wasn't listed on the report.
St. Joseph in Nelson was the top performing school in West Kootenay region, coming in at 52.
The Institute largely uses standardized testing to grade the province's schools and keeps track of data like French Immersion programs, ESL and special needs students.
In their news release, they said that while private schools always do well in their report, many public schools have improved in the last year.
“It is encouraging to see public schools across the province showing signs of improvement. Improving schools can show struggling schools how to help their students achieve better results,” said Peter Cowley, director of School Performance Studies at the Fraser Institute.
