Since first opening its doors in 1921, John Ross Robertson Public School has offered stimulating academic and enrichment programs for elementary students. The school's motto is "Learning Together". The word Learning reflects the school's focus on high academic standards and on helping students reach their full potential. The word Together reflects the school's collaborative culture where students, teachers, parents and community members work as a team. The mission of the school is "To build the best within ourselves and find the good within each other".
