How to define the BEST? Just purely by academic results???

The BEST school for my kid is the one that suits him / her, able to develop him / her to his / her fullest potential and provides him / her with ample opportunities to excel. Does not matter the ranking.

Fully agree with Pen88.

Ranking school based solely on academic results is meaningless.

Perhaps ranking based on the % of students enter to the local U would be a better way to define BEST ?
