About Glendale Public School

Glendale first opened in 1953 with seven classrooms. The school is located within a residential area between Niagara Street & First Avenue and Thorold Road & Woodlawn Avenue in Welland Ontario. There was an addition built in 1963, adding the gym, two changerooms, a staffroom, a library and two additional classrooms. In 1984 another addition was added to the school building a principal's office and three more classrooms. There was a significant fire in 1996 which left the building with extensive smoke and water damage and destroyed precious memories and documents. However, we are creating new ones to begin a new era of memories.

We presently have a student population of 194 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8. We welcomed the YMCA daycare into our school building in 2005 as part of the "Best Start" program.
