The 2nd annual Saskatchewan High School report card has been released by the Frontier Centre for Public Policy.
There has been some movement amongst Saskatoon's high schools, compared to last year's report.
Nutana Collegiate, for instance, last year ranked as the lowest in the city, but has earned itself a much improved 'C+' grade this year.
Mount Royal Collegiate, on the other hand, has dropped off since last year to an overall 'C' grade. One area where the school earned an 'F' though, was in sending students off to post secondary institutions. Out of 244 high schools on the report card, only 5 high schools sent a lower percentage of their students on for further education.
The report card also shows the average grade at Mount Royal Collegiate in Language Arts is quite poor, having received an 'F'.
In Catholic Schools, St. Joseph was the top ranked school at with a 'B minus' grade. Their bottom school was Bishop Murray High School, which received a 'D' grade, dragged down by poor performance in math.
Regina's Scott Collegiate earned the dubious honours of last place, with an overall grade of 'F', with poor grades in math, language arts, and science.
The Prairie South school division held down the top 2 grades of an 'A', for Glentworth and Central Butte Schools.
