Buying a home is a big decision, no matter what stage of life you're in. But for families with children, there are many more things to consider. Every parent is looking for a safe neighbourhood with easy access to parks and recreational activities, but there may be nothing more important than finding a home in a good school district.
Fortunately, there are a number of resources families can use to find the best fit for them and their children. The Province of Ontario's Education Quality and Accountability Office, EQAO, measures the number of students at or above the provincial standard in subjects like math, reading, and writing and scores them on a percentage basis. Barring a few exceptions, every school in the Toronto District School Board is listed here. The C.D. Howe Institute provides rankings by province of the best school districts. The Fraser Institute allows users to compare schools in Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec.
