The Gladstone School District was organized formally in December 1878. A two-storey brick school building was constructed in Gladstone, in what is now the Municipality of WestLake-Gladstone, in 1898. Destroyed by fire in 1918, a six-classroom school replaced it in 1922. That building was demolished in 1973.
