Whitney is located in a well-established residential district in the Rosedale/Moore Park area. The first school was built in 1926 and the current building in 1964. Some parents and grandparents of our students also attended the school. In May 2001, we celebrated the school's 75th anniversary.
The school population is approximately 280 and most students live in the school's catchment area.
The school has a child care centre and an outstanding record of parental involvement.
Many unique initiatives provide enrichment opportunities and experiences for all students and there are many opportunities for students to be involved in outreach programs and give to other communities.

Rosedale was formerly an estate and was named for the wild roses that grew there in abundance. It is also one of the wealthiest and most highly priced neighbourhoods in Canada. Rosedale is built among three ravines, preserved as parkland. Rosedale is full of cul de sacs and convoluted routes through the neighbourhood, which coupled with other physical boundaries (such as the ravines and bridges) leads to low levels of vehicular traffic. Moore Park is one of Toronto's most affluent neighbourhoods. The neighbourhood takes its name from its developer, John T. Moore. It is surrounded by ravines and parklands. The northern boundary is Mount Pleasant Cemetery and the southern the Canadian Pacific Railway tracks.View Neighbourhood
