Athlone School was designed by G. Macdonald of the Winnipeg architectural firm of Ward and Macdonald Associates, and was built by the B. F. Klassen Construction Company. Named for Lord Athlone, Governor-General of Canada from 1940 to 1946, the school was opened officially at a ceremony on 14 October 1965 attended by School Board Chairman H. B. Budgell and Superintendent R. T. F. Thompson. At the time of its opening, the school offered classes in grades 1 to 5, and had an enrollment of 171 students. It was later expanded to includes grades 6 and 7, along with Kindergarten, and a 1967 addition brought the total number of classrooms to 24.
