The very first elementary school in east Maple Ridge opened in 1885 in Whonnock on the shore of the Fraser River. It served both Ruskin and Whonnock and even a few students living across the river.
Ruskin opened its own school in 1897.
In 1908 Whonnock Elementary moved from the shore of the river to northwest corner of 272nd Street and 100th Avenue.
In 1998 the school communities of Ruskin and Whonnock merged in the present school building on 112th Avenue under the name “Whonnock Elementary”
There are several students at Whonnock Elementary today whose parents, and even grandparents, also attended school at Whonnock or Ruskin.
