Welcome to Dr. G. J. MacGillivray 

Public School! 

Our school is a vibrant, diverse and inclusive community of approximately 900 students and 70 staff.  In addition to the learning within the classroom setting, our students have many opportunities to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities, and a wide range of clubs. Our staff is dedicated to providing a safe, inclusive and engaging environment where our students can thrive socially, emotionally and academically. We are grateful for the strong parent and community involvement in our school and appreciate these partnerships.

Our primary communication tool for our families is a weekly email from the administration. We also encourage you to frequently check this website and Edsby for updates and information. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
