Transcona Central School was built in 1913, one year after the town of Transcona, Manitoba was officially incorporated. An addition was added in 1976 to accommodate a French Immersion school – this portion of the school was named École Centrale.
Within five years, there was a decline in the English enrolment at Transcona Central School, while École Centrale’s students doubled in number. Eventually, this led to the regular English classes being discontinued and accommodated in other nearby schools and École Centrale took over the entire facility and became solely a French immersion school.
The older portion of the building, originally Transcona Central School, was demolished in the early 1990s.
