Grosvenor School opened in October 1922, relieving the overcrowded Kelvin High School, La Verendrye School, and River Heights School. Situated on the north side of Grosvenor Avenue, between Wilton and Guelph streets, eight of its twelve classrooms were occupied immediately upon opening. It was designed by local architect J. B. Mitchell.
