Designed by Winnipeg school architect J. B. Mitchell, this three-storey, seven-classroom brick structure was built in 1915 by the contracting firm of Worswick Brothers. It opened in February 1916.

Construction on George V School No. 2 began in the spring of 1951 and opened to students in January 1952. The single-storey cottage-style school cost $132,232 and featured seven classrooms and a gymnasium. The older building was turned over to junior high grades previously transferred to Lord Selkirk School in September 1951. The school was officially opened on 5 March 1952.
