Welcome to St. Jacobs Public School!
St. Jacobs Public School was built in 1929. Additions were added in 1951, 1961, 1968 and 2000.
We have a population of approx. 300 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8.
Parents and our community
We have a wonderful variety of parent volunteers at St. Jacobs Public School. Parent volunteers work in the classrooms, the office, and the library. They help with the pizza, and with special lunches, with driving teams to games and events, and all number of other activities. We also have high school students who come to help with some of our teams as well as co-op students from EDSS High School and Student Teachers from University. All the help they give makes St. Jacobs a great place to grow and learn!

St. Jacobs School has an active Home & School Association. The Home & School is an advisory group to the staff as well as an active group of volunteers who help with Parent Information nights, Staff appreciation, fundraising to help enrich the opportunities for students, the Stinger Reader program and the Blue Spruce/Silver Birch reading programs. As well the Home & School Association puts on the annual School Picnic, awards a Grade 8 Citizenship Award and gives help with the Grade 8 Graduation each year.
