IMG_2456William C. Winegard Public School is a Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 school located at 25 Lee Street in the east end of Guelph. We opened in September of 2014. The population of the school is approximately 480 students.


The school is named after a prominent Guelph citizen, Dr. William C. Winegard. Dr. Winegard is a World War II veteran, a former President of the University of Guelph, a former Member of Parliament, and a recipient of the Order of Canada. Sadly, Dr. Winegard passed away in January of 2019.   His qualities of kindness, respect, generosity, and citizenship live on in the school.
