Built in 1959 by the Transcona School District, the elementary school was based on designs of the Winnipeg architectural firm of Ward and Macdonald. It was officially opened on 12 February 1960 by School Trustee H. C. Hatcher and School Board Chairman A. H. Day. Its capacity was increased in 1962 as part of a $330,000 district expansion program, adding ten classrooms. Renovations in 1988 were designed by the architectural firm of Magnus, Johnson Architects. The school, known as Ecole Regent Park School, converted to a French Immersion program for the start of the 1989-1990 school year in the Transcona-Springfield School Division.
