The Fraser Institute released its annual school report card for Quebec in October and it showed no significant change in the Outaouais region high-school rankings.

The 2007-2008 report details the rankings of 446 high schools in Quebec. It showed that Philemon Wright Regional placed No. 347, and D’Arcy McGee ranked No. 225.

St. Michael’s High School in Low was not included in the survey because its class size is too small. According to the Fraser Institute’s website, each school must have at least 15 students enrolled to quialify in the grading. Eight students graduated from St. Michael’s in 2008.

Two schools in the Gatineau region tied for first place overall in Quebec: Saint-Alexandre College and Saint-Joseph College.

The Fraser Institute’s annual school report card compares the academic performance of schools in Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec. The survey uses the averages from province-wide test scores to compare data to produce the result.
