A total of nine Abbotsford high schools are listed in the rankings. The six who landed in the top half of the province are: Mennonite Educational Institute (22nd), Abbotsford Christian (30th), Robert Bateman and W. J. Mouat (both 96th), St. John Brebeuf (112th) and Yale (119th).

The remaining schools were: Rick Hansen (143rd), Abbotsford Traditional (156th) and Abbotsford Collegiate (264th).
