Administrative history

King Edward School opened in 1906 with two classrooms, however, the number of students in the area continued to grow and by 1912 the school had eight classrooms. Construction began again at the school in 1958, when an annex was built beside the original building. In 1978, a gymnasium was connected to the annex. In 1980, the original school building was demolished, however, the main entrance archway of the school was relocated to Crescent Park. King Edward School closed in 1999 due to declining enrollment.
