The Mariapolis School District was formally established in 1894 and a modest, one-storey schoolhouse was erected in Mariapolis, in what is now the Municipality of Lorne, in 1899. It was replaced in 1912 by a two-storey, four-classroom brick school building.

Near the former school site is a monument (at N49.35972, W98.98693) commemorating the rural schools that, in 1959, were consolidated with Mariapolis School No. 830 to become Mariapolis Consolidated School No. 2372 in the Mountain School Division No. 28. They included Dry River School No. 399 (NW22-4-12W, 1885-1958), Pike Lake School No. 838 (SW17-5-12W, 1894-1950), Zephyr School No. 1384 (NW7-4-12W, 1906-1952), and St. Albert School No. 2164 (NE13-5-12W, 1926-1958).
