Link to:
Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Maps | Sources

The first school at Reston, in the Rural Municipality of Pipestone, was formally established in May 1883 and a schoolhouse was later erected at a site nearby. The first school at this site, a two-storey brick structure, was constructed in 1905. A second one-storey school building was constructed in 1926. Sold at public auction in October 1967, both buildings were demolished. A new elementary school opened in the fall of 1967.
