About Us

JD Hogarth Public School was built in 1990.  We have a spacious Learning Commons, a double gym, and a snack/lunch program.  Improving our playground has been a focus.  Our school and school council have been working together to fundraise towards this initiative.  To date we have raised money to add additional soccer posts, basketball courts and painted games on our tarmac space.  With continued fundraising, our hope is to add an outdoor learning space, additional trees and some natural scape for our students to explore and learn through the environment.

Our students come primarily from the town of Fergus and its surrounding areas.

JD Hogarth is a K to 8 school with both English and French Immersion programs.  French immersion starts in grade 3, the students come from James McQueen P.S. after grade 2.  Our K to 8 English stream come from the town of Fergus with some of our grade 7 students coming from Eramosa P.S.  Although most of our students walk to school, a small percentage of our students are bused.  Students from JD Hogarth P.S. attend Centre Wellington District High School for grades 9 to 12.
