The Middlebro School District was organized formally in January 1931 and a one-room schoolhouse operated in SW7-1-16E in Middlebro, within what is now the Rural Municipality of Piney. To account for increased attendance, a $5,000 debenture was approved for a new schoolhouse in 1947, with the facility built around August of that year. In August 1965, the district was consolidated into the Sprague School District No. 2439.
