The Glenholm School District was established in 1884, and a school building was erected in the southwest quarter of 22-16-14 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Lansdowne. In 1919, it became involved in the rural school consolidation movement when it consolidated with Ridgeview School No. 883 to form Glenholm Consolidated School. In 1968, it became part of the Beautiful Plains School Division. The former school building, dating from 1921, was later renovated into a private residence.
