New Study names Immaculate Conception Top Performing High School

Only one all-boys school has made the list of top performing high schools in Jamaica this year.

The list is compiled by Educate.Jamaica.org, which publishes the Education Matters magazine.

The ranking compares schools based on the number of students who finish grade 11 with five or more CSEC passes including English and Math, based on the 2015 CSEC results.

All girls’ schools dominate the list, with six girls schools in the top ten.

Immaculate Conception High School has replaced Campion College in the number-1 position, with 100-percent of its girls achieving the standard.

Campion College is at number-two on the list, with 99.5-percent of its student meeting the standard.

The only boys school in the top ten is Wolmers, at number nine with 96.7-percent.

Mandeville’s Bishop Gibson High for Girls has jumped from number-16 last year to number-10 this year.

The other schools in the top ten are Montego Bay High School for Girls, Wolmer’s Girls, St. Hilda’s, Hampton, Westwood and Glenmuir.

According to Educate Jamaica, on average, only 32-percent of students leave grade 11 with at least five CSEC subjects.

The organization says the Ministry of Education needs to create resources and help to raise the outcomes being achieved by boys.

    The Kings of Champs, Quiz, Debate, Basketball, Table Tennis and Pepsi Under 14 Football, Kingston College, is now ranked the second best all-boys school in Jamaica with an average of 88.6% from CSEC 2015 replacing the 81.9% they sustained in CSEC 2014. Continue the progress Pitbulls! Let the entire Jamaica accept and understand that you are not a sports school only. Academics come first before sports every time. Also, let it be known that Mr. Dave Myrie, KC’s new principal, was the principal of Wolmer’s School for Boys six years ago, so to see both his past and current boy’s schools right beside each other must make him super proud! Super Principal! #FortisForever #AgeQuodAgis…….. St. GC placed 3rd with 88% and Munro College placed 4th with 87.6% as a “National Ivy All-Boys” school ranked.
