About Our School

James Short Memorial School was built in 1972 and accommodates approximately 310 children living in the southeast communities of Penbrooke Meadows and Applewood. Our bustling early childhood environment houses children from EDC to Grade 2.

Our four Early Development Centre Programs provide leadership in the CBE in that they are designed to support two and a half, three and four year old children with severe developmental delays. We also have five full day Kindergarten programs, four Grade 1 classes and four Grade 2 classes. At James Short Memorial you will see the vitality and excitement of children as they learn. Our school is organized into Professional Learning Communities.

We serve the communities of Penbrooke and Applewood. Both communities are rich in diversity.

Teachers and support staff all love serving this school community, are passionate about students learning and proud to work in this school.
