Elora Public School is a large JK to Grade 8 school located on Mill Street East, on the outskirts of Elora. Our school became a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school in September, 1997 when the former Elora Junior School, Kindergarten to Grade 6, and the former Elora Senior School, Grades 7 and 8, joined as one school on the former Senior School site. There were many challenges in joining two schools with wonderful traditions and histories, but, with the hard work of students, school staff, parents and Board of Education staff, we have together created a wonderful elementary school. Beginning in October, 1997, our school underwent a $3,500,000 renovation and addition project. The addition of eight Primary and Junior classrooms allowed for the accommodation of our Kindergarten to grade 6 students. The existing Senior School was extensively renovated. Our Junior Kindergarten to grade 6 students come from the village of Elora. Our grade 7 and 8 students come from the Alma, Elora, Ponsonby and Salem school areas. The majority of our students travel on a bus to and from our school each day. We have a bright, clean, beautiful school environment for teachers to teach in and children to learn in. In particular, we have a large double gymnasium, an instrumental music room, science and technology labs, a computer lab, a large very welcoming library and well equipped, bright classrooms.
We also have a large playground which includes a Primary/Junior creative playground, basketball hoops, game lines, benches, an outdoor garden and large areas of grass.
Our school staff members work very hard to provide and maintain a safe, positive learning environment for all members of our school community.
