犀牛手札133:给学校发个Report Card

6月的时候,有小孩子的家长们应该都会收到学校发的Report Card(成绩单)。通过成绩单,家长们可以很容易的了解孩子的成长情况,从而可以更好的配合学校,给予孩子适当的指导。

加拿大的菲莎学院(Fraser Institue)每年都会给全安省的所有中小学排名次。而每年的这个时候,也是我们家长和房产投资者精力最集中的时候。随着菲莎排名的影响日益扩大,参加排名的学校越来越多,到今年,小学的数量已经增加到3030所,高中的数量也已经增加到740所。面对这么多的学校,我们如何根据排名来判断学校的好坏呢?难到只有排名第一或者前十的学校的招生区域才能叫好校区吗?

为了更容易的理解学校的好坏,犀牛决定引入学校给学生评分的A、B、C、D、F字母系统,把所有得到A+的学校命名为好校区。下面这个表是Ryerson大学采用的分数转换表,而评判学校优秀与否,我也是用这个表来确定的:

经过这个表转化之后,我们会发现我们可以挑选的好校区大大增加了,小学有303所,高中有74所能得到A+,都是无可争议的好校区。所以,我们以后在给孩子挑选学校以及购买学区房的时候,不需要紧盯着Bayview SS、特鲁多、Bur Oak等等清华班和中印班了,可以把眼界放宽一些。我们要知道:在华人圈以外,还有大把大把的名校区,走出去,外面的世界更大、更广阔、更美好!

因为篇幅限制,今天就说这么多。如果有未尽事宜,或者哪位朋友有问题想和犀牛一起探讨,请直接给我来电话或者微信吧!
