Canadian International School has taken joint first place in a league table of 714 private and government schools offering the Ontario secondary curriculum. The Aberdeen school was one of only three that scored 10 out of 10 in the ranking published by Canadian free-market think-tank The Fraser Institute in its report card on Ontario's secondary schools. The league table is based on a literacy test in Grade 10 and a maths assessment in Grade Nine. The school was also recognised for the third consecutive year in Hong Kong Business Magazine's High Flyers Award campaign as the top international school in the territory. Principal Dave McMaster said: 'We are proud of the results, but they are certainly not a reason for us ever to become complacent. 'Some 65 per cent of our students do not have English as their mother tongue. It shows that they are well prepared, well read and have excellent instruction.'
