Is there ranking on Canadian private schools?
There is no annual, cross-Canada ranking of private schools. The Fraser Institute publishes reports (by province, but not available for all provinces), however only a relatively small percentage of private schools are ranked. As with rankings of any sort (including your child's report card!), it's important to understand objectives, criteria, context and so on. The general feeling among private school administrators is that the fit between student and school, taking into account many factors, is the most significant consideration, not the strength of a school's ranking based on limited factors.
My child doesn't seem to fit most private school's "business model" and we've already been rejected from one school. My son is gifted with ADHD. he is falling through the cracks! We have resulted in homeschooling this year but I want to know what other options there are out there.
Our 7 year old son has just been diagnosed with Dyslexia. We are considering a couple of schools recommended to us for him. We would also like to find a school suitable for our 10 year old daughter starting September 2010, one that would, hopefully be suitable for our son in future years when and if he is able to go "mainstream". I guess what we are looking for is a school that accommodates for students with dyslexia in their high school years (or before).
