About Us

James McQueen BuildingJames McQueen Public School is a small school of approximately 250 students, located in an older area of Fergus. It was the first school in town and was named after the first School Headmaster.

The present building has undergone additions and retrofits on at least three occasions, the last one being in the early 1980’s. It is a single storey structure that has large classrooms (with adjoining coat rooms) and a beautiful Library Learning Commons. The school is known for its warm and inviting atmosphere. The building takes up most of an entire block in town.

Classes are from JK to grade three in the English program and from JK to grade two in the French Immersion program.

At the end of grade two our French Immersion students go to J.D. Hogarth PS and at the end of grade three our English students go to John Black P.S.
