Saskatchewan One Room School Project provides an online history for current generations to enjoy, preserve, and experience, our historical educational, architectural, and cultural, heritage. The one room school house of the late 1800s of the NWT and early 1900s provided education to a burgeoning population. This website honors the communities, teachers and students of that era.

    History of the Saskatchewan One Room School Project, aims and objectives, and future plans.

 
  • ALPHABETICAL Listing One Room Schools, 1850 - 1950.
    Before the advent of large administrative units in the middle 1900s, new communities came together to provide education. Soon there were small school districts every 4-6 miles apart. Most districts consisted of a single 'One Room School' which helped to establish their placename on a map. This section provides an alphabetical listing of some of the nearly 5,000 one room schools. They remain a haven for memories of an earlier time.

  • Gallery of pictures.
    An increase of enrolment and attendance saw the demise of the one room school house by introducing the need for larger schools. Some factors which increased school population were the introduction of the 1945 family allowance which improved student attendance, increased public transportation, larger units of school administration and post-war immigration.
