About Applewood Public School

Applewood Alligator

Applewood School has approximately 190 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 and an educational team dedicated to enriching the lives of everyone in the Applewood Community.

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, as well as, the Learning Commons. 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!  Applewood School proudly provides a rich and varied program in Literacy, Mathematics, French, the Arts, Social Studies, Science & Technology, and Health & Physical Education. Students participate in experiences and opportunities that encourage the development of excellence, integrity, tolerance, respect, and a sense of social responsibility.

Our teachers volunteer their time to organize and supervise extra-curricular activities for Applewood students and we enjoy a strong partnership with the School Council and our community partners. As a unified team we are committed to achieving the common goal of providing an unsurpassed educational experience for all of our students. Parents also serve on committees and assist with many functions where their expertise and support are invaluable. With the support of staff and parent volunteers, Applewood is able to provide numerous learning opportunities for our students.

We look forward to welcoming your family to the Applewood Community!
