The Fraser Institute Report Card on Ontario's Secondary Schools gave an average of 5.3 out of 10 to 73 schools in Toronto, and finds the provincial average to be six out of 10 compared to the GTA average 6.2 out of 10.
According to CP24.ca "Toronto public schools are falling behind the rest of the province when it comes to the quality of education they deliver.
"Our analysis shows that Toronto schools, especially public schools, are doing on average below the rest of the province," Micheal Thomas, Fraser Institute's Associate Director, told CP24.
However, Toronto is working on advancing its standards. The Fraser Institute reported that Toronto schools ranked nine of the top 20 schools that are improving in their grades.
Even though most of Toronto schools did not come out on top it is encouraging to know that they are improving, said Thomas.
"The more effectively the school enables all of its students to succeed, the weaker will be the relationship between the home characteristics of its students and their academic success," he said.
CP24 reported that the private St. Michael Choir School in Toronto scored the highest grades with 9.6 out of ten.
St. Michael's principal Barry White told thedailyplanet.com he feels good about the results.
“ We are no stranger to this division and it feels wonderful about our score and we are proud of our boys.”
