DSBN News:   More Previous Next

We are the home of the Applewood Alligators and our banners at our entrance boast "the best school in DSBN! Respect and Responsibility!" We are very committed to student success and believe in a home and school partnership. We have great community support: encompassing our teaching staff, support staff; families; School Council; community agencies and volunteers.

Set in the heart of Merritton, in the city of St. Catharines, our school first opened in 1979 as a leader in energy conservation. Although the solar panels were eventually removed due to structural complications, we continue to be awarded for conscientiously reducing our energy consumption. The structure of the school had open-concept classrooms: 4 pods downstairs, a double Kindergarten classroom and 2 pods upstairs with joining computer lab and library. The school was renovated in 2009 to create enclosed classrooms rather than open concept style. Built in a valley of berms, 2 creative playgrounds were financed and installed; and are maintained by our Applewood School Council, to this day.

Applewood Public School is a small but wonderful place to learn!
