Welcome !

Naismith Memorial Public School is located in the Town of Mississippi Mills (Almonte) about 40 kilometers south-west of Ottawa (see map below). The school was named after Dr. James Naismith and was built in 1970. As the school population grew, many portables were added until the 2000-2001 school year, when extensive renovations and the building of additional classrooms enabled us to dispose of all portable classrooms. Today, the school has a population of about 254 students from JK to Grade 6.

This year we will all continue to grow and learn in a safe, caring and, positive learning environment, as we carry-on Dr. James Naismith's philosophy; Sound Body~Sound Mind. Here at Naismith we know the importance of a well-rounded educational experience, which is why we offer exciting learning opportunities for your children such as French immersion, a variety of sports teams, a great music program, high academic standards, and so much more. This is thanks to our strong and supportive staff here at Naismith as well as our parents and school community.
