The Crystal City School District was established formally in November 1880, in Crystal City, in what is now the Municipality of Louise. A two-storey brick school building was erected in 1898 on a design by Brandon architect Walter Henderson Shillinglaw. In 1917, it was supplemented by a one-storey brick structure nearby. The older building was later demolished but the other one still stands and, as of 2013, is still being used for storage. In April 1958, it became Crystal City Consolidated School and, in 1964, the high school became known as Thomas Greenway Collegiate.
