How does Canadian Education measure up for International Students? Pretty Darn Good….

The ever evolving questions are really keeping me on my toes. The latest inquiry from an American family centered on the quality of Canadian education for American students. Good question, why come all the way up here to finish a high school program that does not measure up to your country of origin standards. Well, turns out not so, not by a long shot. PISA is a worldwide evaluation tool that measures the performance of education systems through standardized testing of 15 year olds in the domains of reading literacy, math, and science. The latest published data are from the years 2000, 2003, and 2006 respectively. Canada ranks #2 in the world in reading literacy, #5 in mathematics, and #2 in science (hats off to Finland; numero uno in each domain). Compare this to American rankings of #15 for reading literacy, #24 for math, and #21 for science and Canada looks like a safe bet for students wanting the benefits of recovery support and specialized recovery programming combined with a solid high school education that will serve them well down the road.

So unless you are planning a cross continental trek to Finland, students can feel safe staying on North American soil for the support and quality education they need. Okay, our soil may have a little frost line and look suspiciously white a good part of the year, but we take full advantage of our four seasons. Drop the puck!
