About Us

Welcome to J. G. Simcoe Public School, a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school located in Kingston’s north end. Our school opened in 1969 and was named after John Graves Simcoe who was the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada from 1791 to 1796.

We are a small school with approximately 200 students and have a very active and supportive School Council. Our school climate is reflective of the Limestone District School Board pillars: Wellness, Collaboration and Innovation. We are committed to supporting our Simcoe Stars, both academically and socially, to achieve at high levels. Our staff offer students a variety of enriching extra-curricular opportunities, such as rugby, baseball, gardening, art club, photography club, comics club, volleyball, basketball, running, track and field. Our school song exemplifies our belief in all students and the importance of never giving up and being who you are!

Simcoe Stars, shining all around us
Simcoe Stars, giving it our all
Simcoe Stars, nothing's gonna stop us, it's who we are!
