Local schools aren't making the grade

 Fort McMurray's lone Catholic High school is getting some bad grades.
The Fraser Institute lists Father Patrick Mercredi as one of forty schools that have failed to provide adequate post-secondary preparation and failed to improve over five years.
But Superintendent , Kim Jenkins says the conservative think-tank has a narrow view of student performance.
"The key thing to remember here is, for us,  if you drill down into our results you'll see that  the top kids continue to very, very well. However, what we found, where the slippage was, the average kids weren't doing as well as we might like them to do," says Jenkins.
The Fraser Institute also listed Fort McMurray Composite High School as an institution that needs improvement.
