Oh, how the tables have turned.
The report cards are out on high schools across Quebec as the Fraser Institute has released its annual report ranking for 473 Quebec high schools, both private and public.
A whole set of criteria is taken into consideration for the rankings, including student averages in five subjects (language, mathematics, science, technology and history), overall test results, and attendance.

Collège Charlemagne, a private school in Pierrefonds, and Lachine’s Collège Saint-Louis tied for first at the top of its class, both of which scored perfect scores of 10.0.
