Welcome to York Street Public School!

We are a community school in Lowertown Ottawa that serves 235 students and their families from Kindergarten to Grade 8.  At York Street, we strive for students to feel they belong in a safe and inclusive environment.  Educators have high expectations for students where they can learn, grow, explore and discover. Students are encouraged to problem solve by asking questions, testing theories and producing models. We believe that every student is capable and responsible for their progress in learning and look forward to supporting them along this journey.

I invite and encourage parents/guardians to come to school and be part of our learning community. Please visit our school website and look for our regular school newsletter that comes out during the school year. Our monthly School Council meeting is held on the second Tuesday of every month from 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm in the school library.  School council is a place to engage in conversation about learning at school and to meet the parents/guardians of children at school. We are always happy to have new faces join us around the table. 

I look forward to a terrific year and to working with you as a partner in your child’s education.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
