Hi All,

We are an American family who have been living in Montreal for 3 years. We have two kids, 7 and 2. Being immigrants, our children must attend French schools. We like the school our son is currently attending (Ecole NDG), but we may have to move in the next few years and I do not know how to research the quality of schools in the French system. Does anyone know of a resource (preferably in English) for immigrants who are researching French elementary schools? Or, does anyone know what the "best" French elementary schools are? Our search is fairly open at this point but it seems likely that we'll be moving to the West Island. Thanks in advance for any help!

Not sure if this is what you are looking for as it does not have test scores but it shows low income and educational attainment stats for the various schools in Quebec by school board.

I don't understand these tables. What is "threshold index of low income"? What is 6.33 or 62.34 within that index? What is the "low income" for the purpose of the table?

What is "socio-economic index"? (with its decimal rank)? What is the difference between 7.21 and 25.70 within this index?

They say that 10 is the most "defavorised" (according to the method that is not clear to start with). Then they show, for Montreal, that all its schools are defavorised - the 100% !!! All of them take rank between 8 and 10.
