The New Haven School No. 2110 was established in July 1924 and a building was erected on the southwest quarter of 15-4-8 west of the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Municipality of Pembina. It re-used an older district name from New Haven School No. 78 which closed in 1912. This school closed in January 1963 and the remaining students went to Manitou Consolidated School No. 314. As of the early 1990s, the building was being used as a workshop at SE15-4-8W.

The teachers at New Haven School No. 2110 included Miss I. Sutherland (wife of J. Moody), Miss G. Bradley (wife of Mr. Brownlee), Miss C. Lynch, Miss T. Brown (wife of Mr. Forbes), Effie McCaskill, Miss E. Smith (wife of E. March), Miss M. Ridley (wife of C. Wilcox), Miss Clara Sampson (wife of Arthur Edmund Hall), Miss E. Hunter, Miss Edythe Booker (wife of G. Cavers), Miss M. Cummings (wife of J. Amy), Helen Compton (1945-1946), Miss E. Godkin (wife of G. Harde), Mr. M. McCulloch, Mrs. J. Jeffrey, Doreen Olafson (1950-1952, wife of W. Webber), Joy Rowan (1952-1955, wife of L. Snarr), Dorothy Goldsborough (sister of Leonard Harvey Goldsborough, wife of William Myskiw), Mrs. J. Van Den Bosche, and Mr. W. Clark.
