About Our School

St. Michael’s School was first opened in 1967 to serve the needs of the northeastern part of Woodstock. As the community grew, a 7-room portapak was added. Construction of a nine-room addition was completed in April 2008. Six years ago a new HVAC heating/cooling system was installed in the main building. The vast majority of our students are Canadian-born with English as their first language. Families in our school community attend Holy Trinity Parish and Holy Cross Catholic Church.
