Faqs / How do I find a good school district and school?

There are 3 broad schooling systems in Canada – public, private and Catholic. Most kids attend either the public (government run and funded by taxes) or Catholic (run by a Catholic governing body and funded by taxes). School eligibility is dependent on where you live and they have clearly defined areas for school intakes – before buying or renting a property make sure you know which school your children are zoned for.

There are 3 school levels – elementary school (Kindergarten to Grade 6), Middle School (Grade 7 & 8) and High School (Grade 9-12). Some schools house the Elementary and Middle Schools grades together.

More and more private schools are opening up however the level of education often times does not warrant the cost of private schooling. There is standardized testing in Canada – Ontario has a system called EQAO which is done across the province in Grades 3, 6, 9 and 10. These provide a benchmark for each school and the results are made available online – allowing for comparative analysis by school.
