Results for this year’s Common Entrance examination are out and while some schools did not perform so well, others have a lot to be proud of.
Topping the list is the Piaye Combined School which has been named the top public primary school in this year’s Common Entrance examinations.
Piaye Combined scored 77.7 percent mean average, making it the first time that the school has been declared the island’s top primary education institution.
While Piaye performed well at this year’s examinations, the Montessori Centre also delivered great performances and has been named the top private primary school.
Based on figures for the Montessori Centre all the students were above the mean, which is something that does not usually happen.
Senior Mistress of Piaye Combined Hyacintha Longville said that teachers are generally pleased that the school is ranked the top pubic primary educational institution based on this year’s exams.
She said while only one of the students made the top 50 list, the others did their best and the teachers were instrumental in making Piaye Combined the top school.
Meanwhile, one of the Montessori Centre grade six teachers, Fay Sherman, said she is extremely proud of the students.
She said that the school continues to work with students to ensure that they perform above the mean.
Sherman said while the school has been consistently ranked as one of the top primary schools in the country, the teachers always strive to do their best and encourage students to give of their best.
At least six students from the Montessori Centre made it in the top 50 list.
Some 2372 students wrote this year’s Common Entrance exams.
