About Susi

I am a Sales Representative for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, working out of the Signature Service brokerage near Square One in Mississauga. I have been with the brokerage for four years now; in 2011 I received the prestigious BHGRE "Platinum" award and was the Top Realtor in a brokerage of 70 sales representatives and brokers.

I believe that I have built my success on the two tenets of entrepreneurship: hard work and knowledge. I am well aware of the suspect reputation Realtors have among the general public... the comments range from "slimeball" to "do nothing" to "liars" to "angels".... Okay, maybe not "angels". The point is, Realtors can have a tough go of it, character-wise. Read More »

St. Basil Catholic School, Mississauga

St Basil Catholic School Rankings Mississauga


The St. Basil school ranking is not in the Top 40, and is therefore not published. St. Basil Catholic School is in central Rathwood, which is right around the middle in Teacher Difficulty. The ESL percentages aren’t that high, but the Home Situation and Parental Education categories for St. Basil both fall in the Bottom 30.

However, the public schools that serve this area, Silverthorn and Burnhamthorpe, seemingly overcome these challenges. So as a Realtor and an experienced School District Advisor, this is a Catholic school district that I generally tell my clients I have reservations about.

Take a look at their 7-year EQAO performance chart below:

You’ll notice that they have been all over the map – not consistent at all over the past seven years. Their Grade 6 pass-rates, in particular, are cause for concern (especially in Math!). This is important information to know if you are moving your children into the St. Basil school district. But you should know that there are better odds for your children elsewhere in Mississauga.

The St. Basil Catholic school district is probably not the kind of school district you are looking for. And there are many other factors to consider, like neighbourhood demographics, how long it will take to get to work, and actual house concerns too! Perhaps you should take a look at School District Smartsearch to get you started.

You should also have a look at my Homes For Sale in Great School Districts page. There are many MORE homes in recommended school districts that I can find, but each one of these homes IS in a school district that I recommend to my clients.

St. Basil School District
  • ♦ population 8,400
  • ♦ median household income $78.1K
  • ♦ 16.4% single-parent families
  • ♦ 16.4% with household income under $30K
  • ♦ very multi-cultural district; no dominant culture
  • Much MORE demographic info available!!

The components of the Teacher Difficulty Index were gathered through casual discussions with working education professionals, and both the TDI and the SUSI Rankings should be considered as simply an informed and reasonable opinion of the team at SusiHomes.com. If this page was useful in any way to you, please give it g+1 or a Like! I will never contact you through this method (hey - I don't even know how!), but if this page was useful to you, I'd love the shout-out! Thanks, Susi
