Prueter Public School proudly opened its doors in 1952. Our school is named after H. J. Prueter, the first inspector of Kitchener Public Schools. It is located in the Breithaupt area of Kitchener.
Prueter currently has 246 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6. Students attend Margaret Ave. Sr. P.S. for Grades 7 & 8, and Bluevale Collegiate for Grades 9 -12.
We have a dedicated staff of 30 made up of teachers, paraprofessionals, custodians, secretarial and administrative personnel. The staff work closely together to create a learning environment that values and respects students for who they are. Students are offered several extra-curricular opportunities.
Prueter has an active School Council which fund raises to support Home Reading, Field Trips and recess playground equipment.
All students who have needs are supported in their learning by classroom and support staff. In addition Prueter is home to three Congregated classes of the WRDSB. These classes serve students from different areas in Kitchener-Waterloo. The classes offer programs for students with the following needs – Grade 5/6 Learning Disabilities, Grade JK – 2 Autism Spectrum Disorders & a Grade 3 – 6 Autism Spectrum Disorders.
The focus of Prueter’s character development inititatives is “PAWSitive” behaviour. Prueter Panthers strive to be respectful, responsible, caring and safe. This message is the focus of class meetings, presentations and problem-solving. Our goal is to produce students who are empathetic, and who realize that respect is a necessary part of building positive realtionships.
