Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

The Tamarisk School District was established formally in December 1894. A school building operated on the southwest quarter of 29-24-23 west of the Principal Meridian in the Rural Municipality of Grandview. The present school building, dating from 1909 based on a Hooper #2 design, closed in 1967 when it joined the Intermountain School Division. The building is still present at the site, maintained by a local group. In 1995, it became a municipally-designated historic site.
