The Wheatland School District was organized formally in 1884 and a wood frame school building was erected on the southwest quarter of 33-13-22W in what is now the Rural Municipality of Oakview near Oak River. It is believed that, around 1917, the school was consolidated into Oak River Consolidated School No. 253 but little information about its operations has yet been found.

Among the teachers of Wheatland School was Herbert McIntosh.
