Mitchell Woods Public School is a modern K-8 school that opened in 1999.  Located in the northwest corner of Guelph, the school serves a rapidly growing and culturally diverse community. We have almost 600 students this year with thirty languages spoken amongst our student population.  At Mitchell Woods, we are proud of our positive school climate, supported by our excellent staff and actively involved parent community.

At Mitchell Woods we are:

BEING respectful, resilient and positive members of our school community.

BELONGING – everyone is welcome and accepted.

CONTRIBUTING our best to make our school community awesome!

While offering a balanced curriculum, the school features a technologically rich environment including a television studio with monitors in each classroom as well as chrome books, laptops and a modular science and technology room.  A double gym with stage and a newly purchased sound system in 2012 allows for an ideal performance venue as well as a strong athletics program.  We are extremely proud of our music program which boasts a full set of concert band instruments used for both instructional classes and for all students to participate in additional band programs. All three divisions (primary, junior and intermediate) benefit from our music program.  Our intermediate band has performed locally and competed provincially and nationally. We have a modern library resource centre boasting almost 19,000 books for students to access. The school offers a range of programs for special needs.  A wide range of extracurricular activities are available including sports intramurals, choir, band, Eco Club and many more.

To accommodate the new full day kindergarten program, which was implemented in September 2013, an addition was built in 2012 including two brand new classrooms.

The YMCA provides a creatively programmed ‘after school program’ to assist working parents. Please contact the Y directly if you are in need of child care. Call Vanessa Wiatr-Fraser at the YMCA at 519-824-5150 ext. 256

School Song

Mitchell Woods music teacher Mrs. Stronach wrote a school song and with help from Mr. Tucker and Mrs. Growden the song was showcased at our first day assembly. We are very excited for the day when we can all sing the song. Mrs. Stronach will be teaching the song to students in music class.
