Princess Anne Public School, home of the Panthers, is a Kindergarten to Grade 8 elementary school with a student population of approximately 475 and a dedicated staff of 60. The school has been upgraded and renewed over the past 5 years. This includes a brand new two-storey addition of approximately 29 000 square feet which houses a new gymnasium, the Early Learning Program for 4 and 5 year olds, a music room, 10 new classrooms and a daycare run by Larch Street Kids.
Our building houses 17 regular program classes from Early Learning (4 and 5 year olds) to Grade eight and 4 Intensive Support Programs. The intensive support programs assist the learning of special needs students. The individualized programming in these classes provides students with opportunities to maximize their potential. Students in these programs are drawn from Sudbury Central, West End and South End areas.
