Mary Johnston Public School (MJPS) is a medium-sized, dual-stream, JK-Gr. 6 school, offering both English core and French Immersion learning opportunities to students in Grades One through Six. MJPS is also home to four very active FDK classes. We also offer before- and after-school care through extended-day services to families within our learning community.
Mary Johnston is a single-floor school surrounded by an expansive, natural space that includes two creative playgrounds, soccer and baseball fields, as well as a tarmac area for hop scotch, four square and basketball.
Once students graduate from MJPS, they transition to the intermediate division (Grades Seven & Eight) at Centennial Senior Public School. One of our purposeful goals at MJPS is to ensure that, when students leave us in Grade Six, they are both confident of their own learning abilities and also able to advocate for their learning needs as they prepare to continue on their educational journey.
Mary Johnston P.S. operates on a balanced day schedule consisting of two nutritional/activity breaks during which students have time to eat and time to play. Research shows that there are many benefits of a balanced day schedule including enhanced academic performance, increasingly balanced nutrition, and more consistent physical activity.
MJPS students are afforded the opportunity to develop new friendships and to become involved in a wide variety of academic, leadership, and extracurricular activities, appropriate to their ages. Our professional Faculty and Staff are well-supported by a very active and responsive School Council.
We welcome the opportunity to provide further information about the MJPS Learning Community.
