Jack Miner Public School is a Full Day Kindergarten to grade 8 school. Our student population is comprised of 400 regular stream students and 120 Gifted Program students. We also have one Primary-Junior level special education class with 10 students. The students in our Gifted program come from all over Whitby.
At Jack Miner, we focus on building success for students academically as well as developing confidence and strong personal characteristics. A school-wide emphasis on literacy and numeracy, character education, environmental issues and safe schools, guides the direction for instructional strategies, students and community involvement. The school athletic programs, musical opportunities, and extracurricular clubs are structured to encourage maximum participation by all students. We believe that student leadership development is an important part of character development.
