Student Achievement

In province wide testing, York Region District School Board students continue to achieve the highest results in the province (Ontario Ministry of Education: Education Quality and Accountability Office). We believe this is due to a unique combination of students who are prepared and motivated to succeed, teachers who are skilled at helping students learn, strong educational leaders who subscribe to a common vision of excellence, and a supportive community that understands the importance of quality public education.
