The Cloverleaf School District was organized in July 1912 and a one-classroom schoolhouse operated at SW10-12-7E in the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead. A new two-classroom school was opened officially on 28 November 1947. In 1963, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Agassiz School Division. The school closed in the autumn of 1967 and all children were bussed to Beausejour.
