About Us

palmerston front lawnPalmerston Public School is a K-8 school with 495 students located in the Town of Palmerston.  We are located within the Upper Grand District School Board.

The school is “dual-track” offering both English and French Immersion programs from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8. Students who live in town walk to school, while students who live in the country ride the bus. Students attending the French Immersion program come from Palmerston as well as surrounding areas in North Wellington. Students who graduate from Palmerston Public move on to English or French Immersion programs at Norwell District Secondary School or Wellington Heights Secondary School.

The facility was refurbished and an addition added in 1991. Bright classrooms, halls, and library provide an excellent spot for children to learn. The large yards include space for children to play ie. soccer field, creative playground, swings, climbers, basketball hoops, large tarmac with painted games, and a separate area for Kindergarten students.

Students and staff are guided by the school motto “Be the Best You Can Be – Fais de Ton Mieux”. We provide each student with the opportunity to achieve academic success and meet the expectations of the Ontario Curriculum. Our school is committed to providing literacy and mathematics programs that provide the necessary tools and skills for the future.
