Welcome to George Jay

Inclusive, warm and focused on the whole child,  Ecole George Jay connects children and their families to a world of learning and caring.   It is a place where our students have an opportunity to learn and develop empathy and understanding in a school community as diverse as our society itself.  Our academic program is focused on the individual child’s learning needs and accomplished through caring teachers, use of technology and innovative approaches to learning.
