A plaque and monument commemorates Stockton School No. 354, established on 11 November 1884 in Township 6, Range 15. In June 1914, it merged into Stockton Consolidated School No. 1748 and that same summer $12,000 in debentures were issued for the construction of a new schoolhouse. In October 1917, the new Stockton Consolidated School was opened by the Minister of Education, Robert Stirton Thornton. The school was destroyed by fire in February 1941 and a new one was built and opened later that year.

In 1959, the high school section was moved to Glenboro. On 1 January 1968, the elementary part was closed and the building was moved to Glenboro as part of the Tiger Hills School Division. The plaque was donated by Henry Irvine Graham who attended Stockton School from 1914 to 1919.
