About Pine Grove Public School

Pine Grove Public School is named for the pine trees lining the northern school boundary along our parking lot. Until the 1970’s,the north end of St. Catharines was full of tender fruit orchards.

Pine Grove was built in 1974, but not in time for classes to commence in September. The students began their school year at neighbouring schools Orchard Park, Gracefield and Prince Philip until construction was completed. On January 21, 1975 Pine Grove Public School officially opened it doors and welcomed families and neighbours.

In 1975 the land along the front of Lake Street was sold to the former Lincoln County Separate School Board. Michael J. Brennan, our co-terminous partner next door opened in September 1975. Pine Grove Public School and Michael J. Brennan Catholic School were the first schools in Ontario to operate as a shared facility.

Today our school has an enrolment of 213 students from Junior Kindergarten through Grade Six and a total of seventeen teaching and non teaching staff members. Our students go to either Dalewood or Sheridan Park for Grade Seven and Grade Eight. All students currently walk to Pine Grove except for a few Junior Kindergarten students who ride the bus to school.

We currently have four sections of JK/SK and six classes total of grades one to six. As well we use our portable for our music and drama classes every day for half a day. We also share our library with the staff and students from Michael J. Brennan and they share their gym with us. We also offer YMCA before and after school daycare programs to for our students.

We are a very friendly and family oriented building where the needs of all our students are accommodated. Our staff works together to make sure that our building fosters a safe environment for all school members and ensure that our building is a respectful place for both our students and staff to learn and grow.

Through the efforts of students, staff, parents and administration from both Pine Grove and Michael J. Brennan, a growing spirit of co-operation, tolerance, understanding and harmony continues to flourish at Pine Grove Public School.
