Test Scores
Literacy Test
The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test, or OSSLT, is a skills test based on the reading and writing expectations in all subject areas up to the end of Grade 9. The test is mandatory for all students in Grade 10 and must be passed as a requirement to graduate in secondary schools all across Ontario.
Educators at Mary Ward prepare students for the OSSLT with programs such as “Literacy Wednesdays” and after school literacy help for Grade 10s preparing to write the test.
In past years, the preparation for the OSSLT has been successful. In 2009, 87% of Grade 10 students were successful in passing the test. Teachers anticipate the success rate will continue to grow as the years progress.

In Grade 9, students in Ontario participate in a mandatory EQAO math assessment. This test tracks the progress of Ward students in comparison to schools in both our district and in the province.
The Mary Ward mathematics department strives to ensure that students are equipped with the knowledge to succeed in writing the EQAO math assessment.

School Professional Learning Plan

 Toronto Catholic has a fine tradition of student achievement and Christian formation that is rooted in our Faith and that has been supported from generation to generation by families, parishes and school communities. We are grateful for the confidence and trust that families have had in our system and recognize that families are integral to a student's formation. We also acknowledge those educators who have come before us, including the many religious orders, which in concert with the archdiocese of Toronto laboured and sacrificed to create a transformative educational system based upon our Catholic Christian tradition. That tradition is our inheritance and serves today as our foundation. As we look to the future we acknowledge our past and the debt we owe those who came before us.
