Groh Public School is one of the Waterloo Region District School Board’s newly built schools.  It opened in September 2017.  Currently we serve approximately 820 students.  Our school offers students a unique educational opportunity in a JK-8 school environment.  Our aim is to ensure that when they leave us, students will be confident and prepared for the secondary school experience and beyond.


Our school is diverse and we celebrate each and every student. Teachers recognize the value of having students from different backgrounds working together, and employ a variety of differentiated approaches to accommodate diverse learners.


We will prepare children to thrive in our rapidly changing world that puts a premium on a growth mindset in all areas of the curriculum.  Students will develop a growth mindset – enabling students to see opportunities for improvement, take initiative and collaborate with others to turn their ideas into action.
