Janet Lee School, home of the Jaguars! Janet Lee, built in 1987, is located in the Heritage Green area of Upper Stoney Creek. The school is named in honour of Janet Lee who was one of the founders of the world famous Women’s Institute and was also responsible for setting up the first Kindergarten in Hamilton. The school serves students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8. Our current student population is approximately 370 students.
Every year we continue to welcome new students to the school as families move into our area. Aligned with the Board focus, Janet Lee has a very strong emphasis on Literacy across the curriculum. Balanced literacy within protected language blocks is built in to the daily structure. To support our commitment to the best early education program possible, we provide access to Reading Intervention, and supported guided reading in Grades 1, 2 & 3. Within grades 4 through 8, there are flexible leveled groupings to support the language and mathematics programs. Collaboration among grade partners assures a strong, consistent program at all levels.
The School Council and all School personnel work together using their invaluable expertise to assist and enrich Jane Lee’s school learning environment. We all focus on a common goal to create and produce Life Long Learners who will contribute back to society as well-rounded citizens in a safe, respectful, and tolerant environment.
