The Brookfield School District was established formally in November 1920 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW18-14-11E in the Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet. In 1962, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Lac du Bonnet Consolidated School District No. 2394 and later the Agassiz School Division. A stone monument at the former school site was erected in 2017 by the Lac du Bonnet Municipal Heritage Advisory Committee.

Among the teachers of Brookfield School was Ignatius Joseph Zaborniak.
