Operated by Old Kildonan School District No. 2102, this schoolhouse was located on the Outer Two Miles of River Lot 13 of the Parish of Kildonan along the west side of McPhillips Street, near what would later become Leila Avenue. The wooden frame building measured around 26 feet by 28 feet and was named after David Lloyd George (British Prime Minister between 1916 and 1922), as was rural school district in Manitoba. Classes here began around the fall 1923. An October 1950 bylaw proposed the schoolhouses relocation to the corner of McPhillips Street and Templeton Avenue (as well as adding a basement and heating system), but was defeated by district voters. As early as April 1953, the district was looking to sell the schoolhouse, though no sale was completed at that time. Lloyd George School closed in the summer of 1958 and was replaced with Templeton School, located at the proposed site of the rejected 1950 bylaw.
