274 high schools in Alberta got their report cards from the Fraser Institute.
 
The institute ranks the majority of Alberta high schools based on academic indicators generated from Grade 12 provincewide testing, grade-to-grade transition and graduation rates.
 
In the area, Ardrossan High School ranked 30th in the province.
 
"The ranking is solely based on objective measures of student performance in the school," said Peter Cowley, Fraser Institute director of school performance studies. "It's possible for instance that some high schools in Alberta will not be in this report simply because they don't meet the criteria we have based on data."
 
The schools are ranked on a scale of 10, Ardrossan scored a 7.9.
 
“Being able to compare school performance helps parents make more informed decisions when choosing their children’s school,” added Cowley.
 
Other schools in the area ranked include Strathcona Christian at 16, Archbishop Jordan at 45, Bev Facey at 69, Morinville Community at 81, Sturgeon Comp at 118, Lamont High at 200, John Paul II at 210 and Fort High at 224.
 
“Every year, every school in the province should find ways to improve student results—it’s that simple.”
