Peterborough Schools

Schools are the ‘heart of the community’… a great sense of pride, community, and connectedness, are part of living in a home close to a school in Peterborough!  Many children walk to school each day, and crossing guards are fixtures in many communities.  The City of Peterborough is home to more than 30 elementary and secondary schools. Children may start in a Junior Kindergarten (JK) class at the age of 4.  An increasing number of schools are now providing full day kindergarten.  French Immersion programs are available in both the public and Catholic school boards.

To find out about a specific elementary school, please contact Peterborough’s school boards.
