This is the tenth segment of a 19-part blog-series that showcases Mississauga's unique commmunities. We realized that a lot of our clients were coming from outside Mississauga, and while knowing the top schools is important, they have asked for more information about the individual communities these schools reside in and the real estate available. This is an important criteria not lost on us as finding a neighbourhood that fits your lifestyle is extremely important. We've already ranked the communities based on school zones (which you can find here), so now let's take a little bit of time to get to know our communities. Next up: Hurontario!

Hurontario is another neighbourhood where, depending on the street you live on, you could be in either a high-ranked school or a bottom feeder. For instance, those south of Eglinton and west of Hurontario get slotted into #25-ranked Huntington Ridge P.S., meanwhile east of Hurontario get slotted into #61 Nahani Way. For middle school, those west of Hurontario get into #5-ranked Fairwind Sr, meanwhile those east get put into #14 (out of 18) Bristol Road Middle. Does your realtor know the difference?

Final Thoughts on Hurontario
Hurontario is a large community that encompasses many different lifestyle options. You have the older, yet affordable apartments, near the City Centre, with older detached homes and semis in a similar fashion to those we've looked at before in Fairview and Cooksville. Hurontario is also home to many of Mississauga's small to mid-sized businesses, so it's very possible many of you who are reading this work in the area. For those looking to move closer to work, but don't want to sacrifice their children's education, try the pocket in Huntington Ridge (if you're not turned off by some of the older homes). You're looking anywhere from $500-$650K, but it gets you near the City Centre and 403 if you don't mind the traffic and construction for the next little while as they fix the area up.
In terms of the school zone, Hurontario is part of the Applewood Heights school zone. The entire school zone is in the predicament whereby depending on the street you live, it can make the difference between a top-ranked and low-ranked school. As we stated above, does your realtor know the difference? We've done the homework and we most certainly do.
