The Fouillard School District was established in 1946 and a two-room schoolhouse was built on NE34-18-29W in what is now the Rural Municipality of Ellice-Archie. The school, named for local notable Arthur Benoit Fouillard, was designated as a Special School by the Department of Education and replaced a previous educational facility at the St. Hubert Mission. A teacherage was later added on the school yard. During its operation, the school also served as a community hall. The schoolhouse burned down in November 1964 and, in January 1965, the teacherage was converted to classroom space. The school was consolidated into Binscarth School in June 1966. In 1982, the building and surrounding four acres were leased at $55 per year for five years to the Valley View Sheep Farm which then converted the former teacherage (then schoolhouse) into an administrative office.
