Blythwood is located in a North Toronto residential area. The school was built over 85 years ago. In 1992, a multi-purpose room was added that serves as a recreational and meeting facility in the community. The school serves over 400 students from JK to Grade 6. Most of the children are from English speaking homes with a low rate of mobility. The school has a small Early Language Learner population. The school grounds border a ravine and are used extensively by the community all year round for sporting and other group activities. Staff work collaboratively to provide a positive and enriching learning environment for students. Parent volunteers work in partnership with staff to provide a rich variety of activities for our students.
