Ontario secondary school rankings for the school year ending in 2019 have been released from the Fraser Institute - a non-partisan, independent research and educational organization, based in Canada. Rankings are for academic performance based upon standardized testing that is universally administered across the province.
Results during the pandemic years are not available, as the testing was not done for those years. Once results are available for post-pandemic years, this article will be updated.
