The J. B. Mitchell school building was erected in 1955, commemorating architect J. B. Mitchell, and was opened at a ceremony in June 1956. A junior high school until 1989, when it closed due to declining enrollment, it was used in 1990 to temporarily house students from Laura Secord School displaced by renovations. It reopened as a K-6 school in September 1991.
