History and characteristics

  • In 1961, the Souris Regional High School instructing students in grades 9-12 was officially opened by Premier Walter R. Shaw.
  • In 1984, a section of Souris Regional High School was demolished and a new section added containing classrooms, cafeteria, gymnasium, and an area for vocational training in carpentry, welding and motor vehicle repair.
  • Beginning with the 2009 academic year, Souris Regional High School changed to grades 8-12; this was due to the closure of several smaller consolidated (K-8) schools in Kings County.
  • In 2011 the provincial government approved a request from the school board to close and demolish the Souris Consolidated School (grades K-7) and to renovate and build an addition onto the Souris Regional High School building in order to accommodate a total of 625 students (grades K-12). Planning and design was completed in 2012 and construction took place in 2013-2014.
  • The school was renamed Souris Regional School and students from grades K-12 began attending class in 2014.

Souris Regional School is currently the second smallest in the province in terms of student enrollment.
