If you’re planning to move to Ottawa or relocate within the region, there are many great schools to enroll your kids in, including English and French. Here are some options to help you locate schools in Ottawa for your children.
Stephen Leacock Public School
Located in the community of Beaverbrook, the Stephen Leakcock public school is rated as one of the best in the region. It has a population of 510 students and ranges from kindergarten to Grade 6. This school has an Early French Immersion option, which could be ideal if you’re planning to move within the Ottawa-Carleton District and want your children to improve their French and English.
Erskine Johnston Public School
Next up is the W. Erskine Public school which is also located within the same community and district, with a population that’s slightly higher at 670. It has a very diverse and inclusive population with students coming from a wide range of nationalities. It also offers a good, updated range of equipment, facilities and tech throughout the school, including SMART boards, a computer lab, and a large playground and sports field.

In Kanata, you’ll also find the Roland Michener school which has approximately 165 students.
