Media Advisory: Fraser Institute's Annual Alberta High School Rankings Coming Saturday, July 23

CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - July 22, 2016) - The Fraser Institute's Report Card on Alberta's High Schools 2016, the go-to source for measuring school improvement, will be released Saturday, July 23.

The Report Card provides parents with information they can't easily get anywhere else. In addition to five years of academic results, the Report card shows which Alberta high schools have improved, or fallen behind, based on five academic indicators derived from provincewide test results, grade-to-grade transition, and graduation rates.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on Saturday, July 23 at 5:30 a.m. (Mountain).

The complete results for 307 high schools will also be available at www.compareschoolrankings.org where visitors can compare schools over a five-year period.

Peter Cowley, co-author of the report card, will be in Calgary and available for media interviews on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24.
