The school was built by local people on land donated by Sylvestre Baudoin and Fergus Foret. It's first teachers were Ida Foret and Winnie Pittman. Other teachers were Edna Ledet, Anita Knoblach, Louise Sevin and Lillian Scott. They taught local values, basic subjects and strong discipline to students in seven grades. It was destroyed by fire in 1946. The community is forever grateful for its service to education.
