Mississauga’s Best Elementary & Secondary Schools For 2011-2012

Mississauga's TOP Schools have been updated to reflect the current year. Simply fill in the form below to instantly receive your FREE TOP SCHOOLS REPORT!

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!

If you are considering purchasing a home in Mississauga and wish to learn more about the schools, then please contact us.

  26. Hi Amit, 
    I am glad to come across \your website.  My Husband and I were  trying figure out what is the best way to change schools for our daughter.. She just turned 4 in April and I am not happy w/the school she is zoned for.  The one I want her to go to is a french immersion ( Barrondale Public School) closer to where we live… The  zoned school (cooksville creek Public school ) which my husband and myself really dont like that school at all for our daughter..  Is there any way possible way I can change her school to the french immersion school (Barondale Public School)…?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.. 
    Thank You 

  27. Hi Cklala,

    The Peel District School Board is very strict when it comes to school boundaries as each school sets its student population based on specific boundaries in order to control classroom sizes. Now, it would be possible to transfer your child into Barondale if they were attending the French Immersion program, however, those programs begin in Grade 1 and she is just beginning Kindergarten. I’ll touch base with you by email to go over other options. Thanks for your comment!

  30. Hi,
    We are an Indian family coming over to Mississauga by Sep mid , which is the best place to settle down in  mississauga – Malton, Brampton , Streetsville ?  Which are the good public schools in the area for a Grade 5 student and is it easy to get admission to these schools and can u suggest some good and affordable town houses in the area? 

  31. Hi Benny, 

    Thanks for reaching out to us. First, it’s important to know that Brampton and Mississauga are two different, large suburbs of Toronto. And defining the “best” area to settle down in will depend on what you are looking for. For instance, if you’re looking at best schools, then Streetsville would be a better option than Malton, but Malton would be more affordable. I’ll answer in greater detail through email, but for now please visit for our FREE Top Schools Report. This will give you a better idea of the best schools in Mississauga.
