Our motto is Learning Together.
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".
- As of September 2013, the school serves approximately 600 students from JK to Grade 6.
- JRR is a dual-track school with Mid-Immersion French starting at Grade 4.
JRR hosts International Languages Elementary Programs providing opportunities for students to learn and appreciate additional languages, traditions, customs and cultures.
The on-site childcare centre and nursery school accommodates families with pre-school-aged children to students in grade 6.
The JRR School Code of Conduct has two key components:
An outline of expectations for student conduct
A policy on bullying, harassment and discrimination
