Oakville is part of the Halton District School Board, which oversees 18 high schools and 84 elementary schools with over 50,000 total students.
Oakville is home to three major shopping malls, including Upper Oakville Shopping Centre, Oakville Place, and South Oakville Centre. The downtown shopping scene features many streetside retailers and restaurants with patios looking over the water.
Oakville is close to a GO Train Station that goes directly to downtown Toronto. Also, being really close to Toronto, the Pearson Airport is only about a 20 minute drive away.
