Roselands Junior Public School is located at the western edge of the high grounds known as Mount Dennis, on Jane Street south of Eglinton Avenue. For many years this land and the bordering plateau was covered in wild red roses and to the locals, it was known as the 'land of roses' or 'Roselands'.
In the fall of 1922 Roselands Public School opened its doors to the community. The school is situated on 14 spacious and well-kept acres including our unique “Memorial Grove” where 15 trees and a stone commemorate the 15 Roselands students who perished in World War II.

Rockcliffe–Smythe is known for having large amounts of green space. The area is predominately residential in nature, mostly made up of single-family detached homes. Within this neighbourhood there are a couple of pocket neighbourhoods. Directly north-east of Jane Street and St. Clair West is an area called Syme, named after George Syme. Further to the east (beyond Hilldale road) is another pocket called Harwood. Harwood is bordered by a creek in almost all directions.View Neighbourhood
