About Us

Southwood Park is a JK - Grade 8 dual-track school (English and French Immersion Programs) with a current enrolment of over 700 students. The school was built 1969 and is located in a mature residential area of south Ajax.  For the most part, the students in our English program walk to school from the local community, while our French Immersion students are bussed from the Ajax area south of the 401 highway.

Southwood Park Public School is a great place to learn and play. Students enjoy the many extra-curricular activities offered before school, at lunch and after school under the leadership of dedicated and enthusiastic staff.  The diversity of the school is evident from the great variety of cultural backgrounds, learning styles and interests that reflect the student population.
