For many families, one of the most important factors when deciding to buy real estate is the quality of the school that their children will be attending. In Mississauga, the Peel District School Board sets very strict boundaries for its schools. This means that the street you live on could decide the difference between your child attending a top-ranked school versus an average or poorly rated school. Because of this, there are various neighbourhoods that are highly sought after based on the quality of the schools. Unfortunately, there is not a great deal of information available to the general public that says which schools are good, and perhaps more importantly, which schools are bad.
A great resource when determining the quality of the school is the Fraser Institute, a group that looks at various factors and comes up with a "Score" out of 10 to rate each school. A score of 7.5 or above is considered Very Good. Another great resource is the EQAO results that show how the schools grade in three key areas: Reading, Writing, and Math.
We've added up the scored out of 300% (% of students at or above provincial standards in each category) to calculate the score for both the primary division (P), which are Grade 3s, and junior division (J), which are Grade 6s. For the secondary schools, the Grade 9 EQAO Math results were used (out of 100%) for the "academic" stream. The "academic" stream is for those students on course for university/college after secondary school.
Note* Fraser Rankings exclude schools that only go up to Grade 5. A separate, and updated, review of the EQAO results is NOW AVAILABLE BELOW!
