The school was named for East Kildonan Councillor and School Trustee Neil Campbell and opened within the East Kildonan School District in 1956. It was officially unveiled on 19 November 1956. The eight-room building hosted grades 1 to 6 and cost $130,000. Its construction was to help alleviate overcrowding at Lord Wolseley School and Prince Edward School.

In 1960, the facility was expanded on designs by the Winnipeg architectural firm of Smith, Carter, and Searle, adding a gymnasium and the two-storey classroom wing. Additional capacity was added in 1968-1969, on a design by Ward, Macdonald, and Partners, opening in September 1969.
