About Us

Welcome to /Bienvenue à École John McCrae School

John McCrae is a K to 8 French Immersion School located just south of the Speed River in Guelph.  Our 590 Kindergarten to grade 8 students are housed in a beautiful  building surrounded by a park-like setting of maple trees.

John McCrae BuildingAt John McCrae our motto is “Le monde nous attend” – “The World Awaits Us”.  We ask our students everyday to consider “What they will share with the world.” As a staff it is our goal to provide the world with academically strong students, who have a passion and sense of responsibility for the world in which they live.

As the parent community of John McCrae we hope that you will partner with us to provide our students with opportunities to learn about the world awaiting them and how they can make a difference.

Our students are our future.

We have an open door policy at John McCrae and we welcome questions, feedback and suggestions from our parents.  Please join us in making the 2021-2022 school year another great success.
