A Unique and Vibrant Place to Learn!

R.L. Beattie Public School was founded in 1955 and named after Robert Leslie Beattie, Vice-President and General Manager of INCO, as well as President and Director of The Bank of Toronto and General Trust Corporation.  The school was originally built as a three room structure in 1955.  The official opening was held on December 18, 1955 with Mr. Ron Tallon as the first principal.  The school was expanded to six rooms in 1957.  In order to accommodate the school’s population growth, there were a number of later classroom additions.

The school colours, blue and yellow, along with our logo, the Beattie Baron, can be seen in a number of places throughout the school. R.L. Beattie Public School offers the French Immersion program for students from Kindergarten to Grade 6.

The staff, students and parents of R.L. Beattie Public School believe that the purpose of our education is to provide and foster an environment of life-long learners who continually strive for excellence.  We  are extremely proud of the achievements of our students.

At R.L. Beattie Public School, we recognize that parental involvement is critical to student success and that we are partners in education.  We appreciate and value our home/school/community relationships.  Our School Council plays a vital role as an advisory group and, through its recommendations, can contribute to improving student achievement and school performance.

Presently, we have a before and after school program housed at R.L. Beattie Public School called “Beattie Kids”.  It is run by Larch Street Kids (705.688.8600).  In addition, we open our school to a number of community organizations after hours.

We have a very dedicated staff, comprised of both teaching and non-teaching individuals, all of whom are instrumental in developing a positive learning environment for our students. Collectively, we do our utmost to reach the minds and touch the hearts of those in our care and ensure they have the best opportunities to achieve success.
