About Dalewood Public School

XXXDalewood Public School was built in the year 1962 in the midst of fruit orchards, and a second addition was added to the school in 1969 to satisfy the educational needs of a constantly growing population in the north end of the city of St. Catharines. It is located about 1/2 a mile away from Lake Ontario, one of the five Great Lakes. It is also about 1 mile away from the famous Welland Canal, built by William Hamilton Merritt, that allows the ships to go from Lake Ontario to Lake Erie without the difficulty of having to bring the cargo past the Niagara Falls.

XXXDalewood was formerly a middle school consisting of only grade 7&8 students. In 2013, our school began offering grade 1-8 French Immersion, a first for the DSBN. As of September 2014, our school became Dalewood French Immersion Public School. Our primary feeder schools consist of students from across the northend of St. Catharines. Our graduates move onto Governor Simcoe Secondary School for high school and are able to pursue course in French Immersion until graduation.
