Glad Park Public School is named after the street on which it is located in the town of Stouffville.  The school officially opened on October 6, 1997.  Our school motto is “Learning for Life” and the school mascot is the Grizzly Bear.


Glad Park PS is a dual track school with JK to Grade 8 in the English track and Grade 4 to 8 in the French Immersion track.  Students in Grades 1 - 3 French Immersion attend nearby Harry Bowes PS.

In addition to having a before and after school program (privately run), we have many community based organizations use our facility for evening programs. Our exterior property includes: a playground, soccer field, paved play area (basketball nets, low organization/cooperative games, etc.), baseball diamond, and an outdoor classroom called the “Peace Garden”.

At present, roughly 730 JK-8 students attend Glad Park Public School.  Last school year, Glad Park started reaching student capacity.  The school cannot accommodate additional students from new growth at this time.  Due to these accommodation pressures, new registrations from the English track holding area who do not have siblings already attending Glad Park PS will attend Oscar Peterson Public School as a holding area effective September 26, 2019 with busing provided.

The Board’s Capital Strategy list has additional school accommodation proposed in the Stouffville area to help address these accommodation issues; however, there is no set date of opening.  We appreciate your patience as we build the business case for additional pupil places in the Stouffville area for consideration by the Ministry of Education.  Further information is available from the YRDSB Planning Services at


The York Region District School Board has a transportation policy that applies to all of its schools.  There is a Transportation Policy for the English school boundary and for the French Immersion school boundary.  Busing is not provided for students in the English track for locations outside the English track boundary except for a holding school situation such as the one referenced above.
