The following shows the median distance that students travel to schools categorized by the School Transparency and Reporting (STAR) Framework. Each school is provided an overall STAR rating, with one star being the lowest and five the highest. The ward refers to the ward of the student's home.
The distance students travel to schools with higher STAR ratings varies across the city. For example, click on Ward 7 on the map in the dashboard below. In Ward 7, where the median distance to school for all students was the highest in the city at 2.2 miles in SY18-19, students attending schools with ratings of 3, 4, and 5 travel further than their peers at schools with STAR Ratings of 1 or 2. The median distance for Ward 7 students traveling to 5 STAR schools was 4.3 miles and the median distance for students traveling to 1 STAR schools was 1.9 miles.
