According to the EQAO results, Tomken Road Middle School, our #1 middle school last year, has been dethroned by Green Glade Senior School who made a miraculous jump into the #1 spot with a 42% increase from last year. The ever-steady Tomken Road Middle and ever-improving David Leeder Middle School hold joint second place with Hazel McCallion making the long-time Mississauga mayor proud by improving to 4th place and Erin Centre Middle rounding out the Top 5.
Notable mentions to Camilla Road Senior, Cheyne Middle, and Hillside Senior who all made huge improvements from last year's results. The biggest drops came from one of last year's top schools in Hillcrest Middle and Dolphin Senior also took a large and unexpected dip. There are a couple of schools here – namely Homelands Senior, and Queen Elizabeth Snr. whom do not have any posted information. The reason for this is because these schools only have Grades 7 and 8.
As always, there a couple of things to remember:
- Middle School is only 2-3 years of schooling.
- Many Elementary Schools feed into one Middle School – which is why it's always tricky to show consistent high numbers.
For these reasons, I would not solely base my purchase on Middle School ratings. As a reminder, we have to look at the long-term success of the school as some schools can see a large increase or decrease on a year over year basis (as we've seen from this year's results). Also, a very good middle school does not always correlate to a strong high school.
