Smithson Public School

Smithson Public School was built in 1953. The school officially opened on November 20th, 1954. Along with our Kindergarten to Grade 6 classes, we also have a Primary and Junior Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) class , and a Developmental Education class. The integration of all our students is truly valued. Smithson is a feeder school to Stanley Park Senior Public School and Grand River Collegiate Institute (GRCI).
