Quebec has the highest proportion of children attending private schools in North America. 17% of high school students attend private schools. This figure is even higher in Montreal, where 30% of high school students attend private school.
One reason for this is likely cultural, based on the traditions and the values of the population. Another is that Montreal, and all of Quebec, provides subsidies to schools based on enrolment.
That support is reflected in the quality of the schools. It has also encouraged the growth of a student population that's one of the most varied in North America and the world. This population comes from a wide range of socio-economic, academic, and cultural circles.
