The Mallard School District was established formally in April 1925 and a school established on NE29-34-15W in unorganized territory near Mallard Lake in northern Manitoba. Classes reportedly began one month prior, in March, and were held in temporary quarters owned by John Whitford until a schoolhouse was built. Later, an insufficient local assessment base resulted in the school closing and the district being dissolved in September 1949. By the spring of 1950, the school had been reinstated as a Special Revenue School under the Department of Education, with classes taught into the 1960s. The structure’s later fate is unknown.

Among the teachers of Mallard School were Clarence B. Munn (1925), William Kristjanson (1926), Margaret McCreery (1927), Eldred G. Miller (1927-1928), Stanley Arthur Steinmann (1928-1929), W. N.
