Top Schools in Burlington
Good schools have a strong impact on real estate, in various ways. If you have school aged children, you surely want them to attend the best school possible, so it is important to know what schools are the best in the areas you can afford. Even if you don't have school aged children, having property within the boundaries of a top school postively impacts property values, as opposed to an average or lesser school that has no effect and sometimes, a negative effect.
However, as you will see in my Village Guru section of the website, I do not believe that this is the sole factor, or even the number 1 factor in deciding where to live. It is only one aspect in a combination of factors that will determine where is the best place to live for you and your family. There are 9 secondary schools in Burlingon, 6 of which scored 7/10 or higher on the 2010-2011 Fraser Insititute Report. 3 schools are at lower in score, and you might want to investigate these schools further if your new home is to fall within the boundary of these schools.
The far left column indicates where the school ranks out of the 718 schools in Ontario. Note that 6 of the 9 schools are in the top 200 schools, or the top 30% of schools in Ontario.
Take the time to review the following information (source: The Fraser Institute) and use it as part of your overall research in deciding the best place for you and your family to call home.
