Leslie Public School offers English programs in all grades, English as a Second Language instruction, Primary, Junior and Intermediate special education programs and Extended French starting in grade 4.  An independent non-profit daycare centre is housed in the building.

Our mission at John A. Leslie Public School is to provide the foundation for students to become responsible, creative, self-sufficient learners and to nurture partnerships among students, parents, staff and the community.
We believe that :
- everyone is able to learn
- learning through inquiry is beneficial for students
- learning and self-esteem are increased when people are in respectful and caring relationships with others who accept them as individuals
- each individual is ultimately responsible for his or her own choices and actions
- the family plays a significant role in the development of the individual
