Myrtle Philip Community School

At Myrtle Philip Community School we provide quality education in a safe and respectful learning environment.

The present enrollment at Myrtle Philip Community School from Kindergarten to Grade 7 is 270 children.

The original Myrtle Philip Elementary School was built in 1976 on a site that is now part of Village North off Village Gate Boulevard. It served as the centre of community activity prior to the development of Whistler Village and the completion of Meadow Park Recreation Centre.

The school is named after Myrtle Philip, one of Canada's true pioneers who, together with her husband, Alex Philip, built Rainbow Lodge in 1913. The lodge was located on the West side of Alta Lake in the area now known as Rainbow Park. Mrs. Philip served as a school trustee in our district for many years.

The new Myrtle Philip Community School was officially opened in September of 1992. Additional funding from the RMOW allowed for building community space within the school, and the school is a hive of activity from morning 'til night.
