Hi there!

We live in MN and plan to move to Ontario in the next few years. We have a child in HS, MS and elementary. We are wondering about the quality of education in the Ontario schools. Could someone please share any experiences they may have with the Ontario school system? Thanks!

HI Jazzy. I saw your post in the other thread and wanted to respond. If you look back through that thread you will see a poster who was very unhappy with the level of education in Ontario compared to what they had experienced in the US (I think Michigan?). They ended up using private schools to keep up.

For myself, I lived in another province of Canada. I felt my grade school education was poor at best. That being said, I have many friends who still live in Canada with kids in private schools. The one I am most familiar with is very affordable because it is subsidized by the province. If I remember correctly, for the same tuition I pay for 2 kids to attend private school in the US I could pay for 10 students to attend private high school there. That same school also has a large online home school program. So perhaps if you feel the public education is not up to par you could find such a private school or online home school program in Ontario. In fact, you could probably use a US online homeschooling program.

You have plenty of time to do research if you are not planning to move for several years. Good luck!
