About Us

Lord Elgin Public School is located at 1100 Victoria Drive, London Ontario, between Huron Street and Cheapside. It can only be reached from McNay Drive.  

Lord Elgin Public School serves a diverse, multi cultural population with a high population of English Language Learners in its Junior Kindergarten to grade 8 programs.  The school officially opened May 22, 1970 and staff at Lord Elgin are highly professional, kind and caring teachers, where the focus on the children and the community matter! We are also fortunate to have a great variety of volunteers.

Students are expected to follow a code of conduct that includes respect for others and zero tolerance for violence, racism and discrimination.  Lord Elgin has adopted R.O.A.R. (Respect, Optimism, Acceptance, Responsibility) as monthly character traits. Students are recognized for demonstrating the monthly skill as well as an opportunity to highlight academic performance through our daily Paw Print awards as well as at our monthly Terrific Kids assemblies.
