Today's Parent Fifth Annual Top 25 Schools in Canada



    TORONTO, Aug. 11 /CNW/ - Today's Parent releases its annual Top Schools
list, recognizing the best elementary and middle schools across Canada. From
learning to respect the environment by maintaining a butterfly garden to
improving mathematical and measurement skills by designing an amusement park -
it's easy to see why these innovative schools were chosen as our top 25!
    The process:
    The 25 schools featured in Today's Parent were chosen from hundreds of
nominations submitted by readers. We carefully pored over each submission,
looking for the "wow" factor and then made our choice. The top 25 are
presented in 10 categories.
    The full story is available in the September issue of Today's Parent on
newsstands today, and online at www.todaysparent.com.
