Manitoba Organization: North Springfield School District No. 38

The North Springfield School District was organized formally in September 1876 and through the years it operated two school sites in Springfield and another in North Kildonan:

North Springfield School / Lorne Hill School (Lorne Hill Road, RM of Springfield)

North Transcona School / Beaman School (Springfield Road, Winnipeg)

Prince Charles School (2177 Springfield Road, RM of Springfield)

In 1968, all remaining schools were closed and the district was dissolved into the Transcona-Springfield School Division.
