VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - August 17, 2016) - On Thursday, Aug. 18, the Fraser Institute will release the Report Card on British Columbia's Secondary Schools 2016, the go-to source for measuring school improvement.

The Report Card provides parents with information they can't easily get anywhere else by showing which B.C. public and independent secondary schools have improved or fallen behind, based on seven performance indicators derived from provincewide test results.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on Thursday, Aug. 18 at 5:00 a.m. (PDT).

The complete results for all 294 secondary schools will also be available at www.compareschoolrankings.org.
