Houston’s Twain Sullivan is the Bulkley Valley’s topped ranked elementary school, according to the Fraser Institute’s 2012 school rankings.

Twain Sullivan placed 81 out of 860 schools in B.C.

St. Joseph’s school in Smithers was second for the district and ranked 122 in B.C.

Muheim Memorial placed 158 in B.C., while Telkwa placed 235, and Walnut Park placed 380.

The Fraser Institute, a conservative think-tank with offices in Vancouver, bases its rankings of B.C. elementary schools on Foundation Skills Assessments—province-wide tests of reading, writing and numeracy that are given to Grade 4 and Grade 7 students.
