May I ask whether "standard" is countable or not because I found the following sentence on the newspaper.

"He had chosen this school for its high ranking and good English standards."

Can you help, please.

Thanks.

It can be countable or uncountable, depending on the context.
Omit "or not". End a question with a question mark.
