Improving East Vancouver secondary schools

 
The three fastest-improving secondary schools in Vancouver are public schools on the east side of the city, finds the Fraser Institute’s annual school rankings.
The “Report Card on B.C.’s Secondary Schools 2014” ranks 293 public and independent secondary schools based on seven indicators using data from the annual province-wide exams administered by the B.C. Ministry of Education.
According to the report card, 30 schools across the province showed improvement over the past five years, including East Vancouver public schools Britannia, Vancouver Technical and Gladstone.
Britannia, a century-old school near Commercial Drive, posted an overall rating of 3 out of 10 in 2009, then improved to 4.4 by 2013, even though 25.3 per cent of its students have special needs—the highest proportion of special needs students among all 293 schools in the Report Card.
“A school like Britannia counters one of the common misconceptions about student performance. It has a high percentage of special needs students, yet it’s improving. The Fraser Institute Report Card consistently demonstrates that some schools find ways to do better regardless of the challenges students face,” said Peter Cowley, Fraser Institute director of school performance studies.
But are other schools learning the secrets of success?
“Parents at schools with consistently low ratings, or schools with declining results, should ask their principals when their schools will experience the kind of improvement in student performance we see in other schools,” Cowley said.
