York Street Public School is an elementary school in the Lower Town neighbourhood of Ottawa, Canada. The school was built in 1922[1] replacing four smaller schools in the area: Robinson Primary, George Street, Rideau Street, and Bolton. The school plays a prominent role[2] in the books of children's author Brian Doyle, who is a graduate.

York Street Public School places an emphasis on community involvement. During the school year, York Street P.S gets involved in many initiatives including the Bell Canada Raise-A-Reader Program, the Heart of the City Music Program and also Child and Youth Friendly Ottawa's SOAR Leadership Program.

They have been champions at the OCDSB's annual Math & Tech Competition in 2005.
