COOKSVILLE REAL ESTATE REVIEW!

THE REPORT CARD

Overall Ranking: T-15th/19

OVERALL SCORE: 6.25/10
WALK + DRIVE 8/10

Walk + Drive

Central Cooksville is a really great commuter area. You have the Cooksville GO station right nearby and the QEW is very close by. You also are just a few minutes south of the City Centre. However, one of Mississauga’s less desirable intersections (Hurontario & Dundas) makes up the bulk of this area. Again, you’ll want to stick west and southwest for the best bits of Cooksville.

AFFORDABILITY 7/10

Affordability

Cooksville is one of the most affordable neighbourhoods for families looking to own their first home. Cooksville real estate is split up between the plethora of condos in the Dundas & Hurontario area near the City Centre, the condo townhomes that line Dundas west to Mavis, and the more traditional, 2-storey homes (~30 years old) in the Mavis/Queensway area. The affordability is similar to that of Erin Mills or Erindale at the moment but with the Hurontario LRT coming to town prices here are looking to rise. Get in now to beat the rush. 

SCHOOL QUALITY 5/10

School Quality

Heed my advice – stay west/southwest! This also applies to the schools! You’ll definitely want to avoid the schools in Central Cooksville. Its high school I believe is the worst-performing in Mississauga. However, on the west and southwest end you actually get into the fantastic Floradale PS which then puts you on course to Port Credit Secondary School which rates as one of the best in Mississauga!

DESIRABILITY 5/10

Desirability

There aren’t a lot of pockets in Cooksville that I would recommend to those unless they’re on a strict budget. However, there are a couple of pockets on the west of Cooksville that are fantastic. Stick to the Mavis/Dundas and a bit further south you have the Mavis/Queensway area that is often considered Mavis-Erindale. These are really attractive areas that are quite affordable that don’t come with the often negative reputation of its neighbour to the East.

COOKSVILLE SCHOOLS

Corsair PS

Corsair has performed fantastically well in an otherwise weak school zone, however they are now a full-time French Immersion school. Students in this zone will now be sent to the under-performing Munden Park.

Floradale PS

Floradale PS comes in at #33 in the rankings and places above the Peel average at both the Grade 3 (Primary) and Grade 6 (Junior) levels. Floradale jumped up in the rankings thanks to its 5-year EQAO improvement of nearly 17.5%!
Full Floradale School Report

Cashmere Avenue PS

Cashmere Avenue PS ranks above the Peel average at both the Grade 3 (Primary) and Grade 6 (Junior) levels. That’s impressive and as a bonus filters into the highly-rated Port Credit Secondary School.

Clifton PS

Clifton PS has been fairly inconsistent over the years and have seen a pretty steep drop in the rankings over the past 5 years with a 21.4% decrease in their scores over that same timespan

Munden Park PS

Munden Park has not performed well at all, falling well outside the Top 50 in Mississauga. Munden Park is now receiving students from Corsair, so perhaps some improvement will be seen. However, still avoid if possible as it filters to Mississauga’s worst-performing high school in TL Kennedy.

FEATURES

The Lifestyle

Life in Cooksville is very convenient as it is situated right in the heart of Mississauga just south of the City Centre which boasts the majority of the city’s retail and entertainment amenities. Busy during the day, but quiet at night, Cooksville is a relic of the old Mississauga that is at times still trying to find its place in the increasing modernity of the city. 

Who's Next Door?

Most of the new entrants are first-time home buyers and newer immigrants looking to start a family in Mississauga. Many are the older generation of immigrants that have occupied the area for over 30 years, raised their families, and have chosen to retire, renovate and stay in the area. 

The Homes

In Cooksville real estate you’ll find a bit of everything. Condos and semis close to the City Centre, condo and freehold towns to the southwest near Dundas/Mavis and the traditional 2-storey homes south in the Mavis/Queensway area. Layouts and styles can feel a bit dated in some of the older homes, but a lot of residents have kept with the times and there are plenty of solid and affordable options.

The Commute

Cooksville has one of the major GO Train station stops in all of Mississauga, so for those who work downtown, it’s your best alternative to driving from what can be a long distance in the centre of Mississauga. Public transportation and access to the rest of the city is great. This is one of Cooksville’s best features.
