Historic Sites of Manitoba: St. Jean School No. 1508 (RM of Grey)

The St. Jean School District was organized formally in March 1909. As of 1945, a one-room schoolhouse was operating at the southwest corner of SW5-9-6W in the Rural Municipality of Grey. The district was dissolved in 1961 and its catchment area was distributed between Dandurand Consolidated School District and the St. Claude Consolidated School District, and later the Mountain School Division. No vestige of the school remains at the site.
