History of Oakville School
The original school in Oakville was built in 1906 and burned down in 1959. Following the fire the current school was built, opening in 1960. Upon completion of the project the surrounding schools in the Oakville area were closed down and all the students from these schools went to the new school in Oakville.
The small country district schools operated between the following years of:
Mill Creek- 1898-1967
Beautiful Valley- 1897-1967
Elm River- 1890-1967
East Curtis- 1902-1967
Following the closure of Poplar Point School in the late 1990's students from that school became members of the Oakville School community.
