This school site is bounded on the west by London Street (originally Wallace Street), on the south by Prince Rupert Avenue, and on the east by Besant Street (originally Harold Street).

Salisbury School No. 1, also known as Lord Salisbury School No. 1, was located at the east end of the site, near the corner of Besant and Prince Rupert. Its cornerstone was laid on 24 April 1915 by the wife of James McWen, East Kildonan school trustee, and MLA Donald Albert Ross. The school was part of a three-school $180,000 building program which included Lord Wolseley School and Lord Kitchener School.

Salisbury School No. 1 was a three-storey brick structure containing four classrooms, along with four manual training benches, two of which were donated by D. A. Ross, with the provincial government matching his gift. Designed by Winnipeg architect John D. Atchison, the building was completed in July 1915 at a cost of $75,000. It began receiving students in the fall of that year, helping to alleviate overcrowding at nearby Polson School. The school was named for the Salisbury Plains in England, where around 30,000 Canadian troops were trained enroute to the First World War battlefields. The site was formerly owned by Selkirk Settler Neil Campbell.

Salisbury School No. 2 was designed by architect Edgar Prain and built west of Salisbury School No. 1, along Prince Rupert Avenue. Construction began in 1920 and the six-classroom school was opened on 4 January 1921 by East Kildonan Reeve Samuel Robert Henderson and East Kildonan School Board Chairman Hugh McNair. The six classroom structure cost $45,874 and initially hosted 174 students.

In 1922, Salisbury School No. 1 was closed in a cost-cutting measure, with its students being moved to Salisbury School No. 2, and a few to Polson School. It remained closed until 1949, when renovations were undertaken under the supervision of architect Edgar Prain. The school was officially re-opened on 30 August 1950, at a ceremony attended by Minister of Education W. C. Miller, Deputy Minister of Education R. O. MacFarlane, East Kildonan Mayor J. L. Bodie, and local councillors and school board trustees. The Salisbury School No. 1 building was used until 1977, after which it sat vacant until its demolition in July 1987. An addition to the original building remained as of 1989, but was later torn down. A date-stone, the last vestige of the original 1915 structure, now sits between the doors at the present main entrance to Salisbury Morse Place School.

In 1959, a $280,000 building was constructed at the west end of the site, near the corner of London Street and Prince Rupert Avenue, designed by the architectural firm of Smith, Carter, Searle, and Associates. It was named Morse Place Junior High School following a “name the school” contest won by local student Geraldine Herndon. It featured twelve classrooms, two home economics rooms, two shops rooms, and an auditorium. The school was opened officially in November 1959 at a ceremony attended by East Kildonan School Board Chairman L. A. McMahon, Chief School Inspector R. W. Lightly, East Kildonan Inspector D. H. Stewart, East Kildonan Mayor George Nordland Suttie, and Venerable Archdeacon R. E. Park of St. Saviour’s Anglican Church. The school was expanded in 1974-1975 on designs from the firm of Macdonald, Cockburn, McLeod, and McFeetors. With the opening of Morse Place Junior High School for middle-year students, Salisbury School focused on the elementary grades with its own teaching staff and Principal. The Salisbury building was given a major expansion in 1968-1969 under designs by the architectural firm of Ward and Macdonald.

In November 1992, a $160,000 project got underway to attach the Salisbury School building to the Morse Place Junior High School, thereby forming a single institution to be known as Salisbury Morse Place School. When it was completed, the renovated school accommodated grades K-9 with a unified staff under a single Principal. In 1994, significant masonry replacement work was done under the direction of Penner and Keeler Partners Limited. The original 1920 structure of Salisbury School No. 2 was demolished late in 2002 after significant structural deterioration was discovered and engineers concluded the approximately 815-square-meter building was too expensive to repair. Renovations and upgrades to the Salisbury Morse Place School were made at that time, under the supervision of MCM Architects Incorporated.
