Welcome to Shakespeare Public School
Welcome to Shakespeare Public School where the focus is on student learning.
Shakespeare Public School was built in 1978. It is a Kindergarten to Grade Six School located a few blocks south of downtown Stratford. Shakespeare provides a positive, supportive and inclusive learning environment for approximately 200 students and 24 dedicated staff members. The administration, teachers, and support staff work together to create an atmosphere where children can grow in a caring learning environment.
Shakespeare has an active School Council. These individuals contribute a great deal to our school community through their support of the fundraising activities at our school. They also organize events throughout the school year and offer their ideas and input into decisions made at both the school and Board level. Our school appreciates their support and benefits from their expertise, energy, and commitment. New members are always welcome.
We offer many extra-curricular activities thanks to our staff and dedicated volunteers. There are many opportunities for students to get involved. We offer a variety of activities to our students. Activities involve sports teams, intramural sports, choirs, a chess club, and band. We encourage all of our students to be active and get involved.
This year we welcome the addition of Full Day Kindergarten. This is an exciting opportunity where students are immersed in Inquiry Based Learning. Students have the opportunity to engage in learning that is led by their interests. Kindergarten students are supported by a Teacher and an Early Childhood Educator.
At Shakespeare we continue to develop our school wide character program called Positive Behaviour Supports. PBS is a school – wide plan to create clear expectations for our students and to reinforce them with positive messages. Last year PBS was a success and we look forward to further developing this program.
If you are interested in getting involved at the school, please call. We are fortunate to have a team of parents, secondary students, and retired teachers who offer their time and expertise to enhance our school community. We offer many opportunities for volunteers, whether reading with a student, supervising a class trip, helping with Friday lunches, helping with the nutrition program, or helping with fundraising.
Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or administrative staff if you have any questions or concerns.
Engage, Inspire, Innovate… Always Learning
