Bruce Junior Public School
Originally named “Leslie Garden School”, Bruce Jr. Public School is located in the hip Leslieville area in an area previously occupied by The Leslie Nursery Gardens. When the nursery was sold, construction started and a new school opened in 1923. Originally the area was populated primarily by a community of British Heritage. Today many of our students have English as their second language. The largest non-English speaking group is of Chinese heritage, with growing representation of other languages and cultures. We provide Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 and have a vibrant Early Years partnership with WoodGreen Community Services, providing seamless childcare and learning opportunities for families and children of all ages and backgrounds.
