We are located in the historic community of Mount Dennis, near Weston Road and Eglinton Avenue. Mount Dennis was founded in 1797. The first school opened in 1891.
Many families have ancestral roots in this former small town. About 45% of the students and families speak English as a second language. Home languages include Vietnamese, Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese, and Somali.
A partnership between our school, parents and community is essential to create an environment that promotes academic growth, social development, and a positive feeling of self-worth.
In partnership with Macaulay Child Development and Syme Woolner Centres, we house the Dennis Avenue C. S. Early Years Centre.

Primarily located along Eglinton Avenue between the Humber River and the Kitchener commuter rail line, the Mount Dennis neighbourhood was best known for Kodak Heights, once a major film manufacturing facility owned and operated by the Eastman Kodak Company. The area is a classic example of Toronto's diversity, with dozens of ethnic groups represented. The area contains a mix of duplexes, semi-detached and detached homes in addition to multi-level apartment buildings.View Neighbourhood
