John Black school is located on a 2 acre parcel of land overlooking the Grand River in Fergus. The school, although located on the outskirts of Fergus, has a rural character.
John Black school was originally built in 1959 on a parcel of land donated by the John Black family. In 1994, the school was extensively renovated with the addition of numerous classrooms and a larger gymnasium. The school was reopened in 1995 as it appears today.
