ST. GEORGES/THE WARD SCHOOLS
Ottawa Crescent PS
Ottawa Crescent PS unfortunately falls below the Upper Grand District School Board average and therefore receives a caution rating. This simply means that more information will be needed before being able to recommend the school to prospective parents. Keep in mind that Ottawa Crescent PS had the 2nd-highest special needs rate in Guelph at 40% of the Grade 3/6 student population. This can often affect school scores greatly and a higher Special Needs percentage is often correlated with lower overall test scores.
King George PS
Like the neighbourhood itself, King George PS is a transitioning school. Built in 2012, King George acted as a holding school for two other schools until it became a JK-7 French Immersion school in 2014. In 2015, it added Grade 8 and is now the full-time French Immersion school for St. Georges/St. Patrick.
John Galt PS
Another transitioning school, John Galt is a larger school that was built and replaced the old Laurine Avenue school. The student population in St. Georges/The Ward and the east end of Guelph has increased greatly and new schools were badly needed. John Galt PS also gets a red caution tag while it’s still battling transition issues. It finished 2nd last to only Willow Road PS in terms of its school ratings over the past few years. Again, with the changing demographic and increased focused on educational improvement, I expect this score to improve rapidly.
