CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/03/13 -- The Fraser Institute's Report Card on Alberta's High Schools 2013, the go-to source for measuring school performance and improvement, will be released Saturday, May 4 at 6:30 a.m. (Mountain).

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, academically over the past five years.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwire on Saturday, May 4 at 6:30 a.m. (Mountain).

School results will be published in the Calgary Herald and the Edmonton Sun. The complete results for 279 high schools will also be available at www.compareschoolrankings.org where visitors can graphically compare schools' recent results on any of the report card's academic indicators and ratings.

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