Best Schools in Etobicoke


There are various criteria to consider when researching schools, including available extra-curricular activities, the size and demographics of the school, and of course the proximity to your home. However, the only real tangible way to rank the best schools in Etobicoke is by results. As such, EQAO performance serves as the basis for the rankings in our tables of top schools.
