VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/14/13 -- The Fraser Institute's Report Card on British Columbia's Secondary Schools 2013, the go-to source for measuring school performance and improvement, will be released Monday, June 17 at 6:30 a.m. (Pacific).

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 B.C. secondary schools have improved, or fallen behind, in academics over the past five years.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwire on Monday, June 17 at 6:30 a.m. (Pacific).

School results will be published in Vancouver 24 Hours and Sing Tao. The complete results for 284 secondary schools will also be available at www.compareschoolrankings.org, where visitors can compare individual school results on a variety of academic indicators and ratings.
