Hazel School was established in October 1887, and a school building was erected on the northwest quarter of 2-4-9 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Pembina. It operated until July 1966 when it merged with Manitou Consolidated School No. 314.

Among the teachers of Hazel School were Nellie McClung (1890-1891) and Miss Edith Young.
