The Pine River School District was organized formally in October 1905 and a school building was erected on the southwest quarter of 33-32-22 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Mountain. In 1919, a new two-room school was built by Ira Stratton and expanded with additional two classrooms in 1927. The school was completely destroyed by fire on 3 October 1952. Classes were held temporarily at the Pine River Town Hall and local United Church club room until a replacement facility was completed by the end of the school year. The district became the Pine River Consolidated School District No. 2438 in January 1966, which later became became part of the Duck Mountain School Division in April 1967.
