The school will be ready for full occupancy - JK to Grade 8 - for September 2014.

MacLeod P.S. was rated one of the top 40 great schools in Canada in the September 2005 issue of Canadian Today’s Parent Magazine due to its respectful environment, which came as a result of the Pay It Forward program. This initiative started with the belief that students would do random acts of kindness without wanting anything in return. Our MacLeod Community has raised over $ 28,000 for the Sudbury foodbank by encouraging families to purchase gift cards, rather than teacher gifts at Christmas. This year we are encouraging families to purchase “Mittens for the Mission” in lieu of Christmas gifts to support the Elgin Street Mission.
Students at MacLeod P.S. begin French as a Second Language instruction for 30 minutes a day beginning in Grade 4. Students begin Instrumental Music instruction in Grade 5. Our Concert Band is World Class and has received numerous accolades.
Athletic opportunities abound at MacLeod. Our junior students may participate in cross country running, co-ed volleyball, co-ed basketball, soccer, track and field and relay teams. Our intermediate students may participate in cross country running, soccer, volleyball, basketball, hockey, baseball, track and field, and relay teams. Our teams are competitive and our showcase is filled with trophies and plaques.
There are many academic challenges for our students as well. Our students participate in Spelling Bee of Canada, Heritage Fair, Science Fair, Entrepreneurship Fair and Math, Science and Technology Olympics. Our Grade 3 and 6 EQAO scores are above both the board and provincial average!
The School Council at MacLeod meets regularly, supporting and promoting our school.
At MacLeod, we believe technology is an important part of our student's lives. Ensuring effective and appropriate uses of technology, to meet today's quickly changing technological realities, is an important part of our teaching.
