The Hiltonmye School District was established formally in July 1892 and a school building was later erected in the village of Hilton, in what is now the Rural Municipality of Prairie Lakes. The school closed in 1968 and its remaining students went to Glenboro Consolidated School No. 2367. The former school building was used for a time as a cattle shed but was destroyed by fire sometime after 2006. A monument commemorates it at the site.
Among the other teachers of Hiltonmye School were Clara Beatrice McQuarrie (1928-1929) and Sheila McGregor (1961-1966).
