Organized formally as Clyde School District in February 1920, it was renamed the Roseville School District in July 1925. A one-room schoolhouse operated at SE32-2-1W in the Municipality of Rhineland. It closed in August 1971 when it became part of the Rhineland School Division and the building was dismantled. The former school yard, with its associated teacherage, was sold and the building was renovated into a private residence. Some records pertaining to the school district are held at the Altona and District Heritage Research Centre.
Among the teachers who worked at Roseville School through the years were Al Schmidt (1957-1959), Gus Pokrant, and Henry Krueger.
