Designed by the architectural firm of Smith Carter Searle and Associates, and built at a cost of around $360,000 to replace the old condemned Queen Elizabeth School, this school was opened officially as Queen Elizabeth School on 7 December 1962. In 1998, the Louis Riel School Division took the uncommon step of dropping the royal name in favour of broadcaster Henri Bergeron, henceforth known as École Henri-Bergeron.
