Surrey's Southridge School was the only non-Vancouver school in the top five of the Fraser Institute's secondary school rankings for 2011-12.

Private schools top Fraser Institute’s B.C. secondary school rankings for 2012

Vancouver's York House and Crofton House tied for 1st. Surrey's Southridge (3rd) was the only non-Vancouver school in the top five.

The often debated, nearly always controversial Fraser Institute secondary school rankings have been released for the 2011/12 year, and private schools own 18 of the top 20 spots.

Vancouver all-girls schools York House and Crofton House tied for first with the report’s only two perfect scores (10.0), and Surrey’s Southridge school ranked third with a score of 9.6. York House is the only school on the list to have a 10.0 rating in the most recent five years.

Vancouver’s St. George’s (9.5) came fourth and West Point Grey (9.3) and Little Flower (9.3), both in Vancouver, tied for fifth.

The full list is available on the Fraser Institute’s website.

Southridge was the highest-ranking Fraser Valley school for 2013. Maple Ridge’s Meadowridge came in ninth with a score of 9.0. Delta’s Southpointe and Surrey’s Relevant tied for 11th with scores of 8.7.

“Private schools continue to dominate the controversial School Report Card ranking system,” wrote the CBC.

“The Fraser Institute suggests private schools score better, because they are more accountable to parents.

“The institute also found 26 secondary schools across B.C., including 21 public schools, have seen their academic performance improve over the past five years.”
