Our School

Centennial Public School is nestled in a residential area of Hespeler right behind Jacob Hespeler Secondary School. The original part of the school was opened in 1959. Additions were built in the 1960s and 1970s.

This year we have 218 students in 9 classes. ¬†Students, parents, and staff repeatedly express an appreciation for the warm and friendly “family” atmosphere of the school. We are a community and we work together to best meet the needs of each learner. We also have WRDSB extended day programs before and after school on-site.
