History

The school was founded in the late 19th century. It moved into a purpose brick built building, the first in the area, in 1915 when it was known as Rothesay Consolidated School and educated in grades 1–12. After the opening of a new high school in the 1950s it was renamed as Rothesay Elementary School and restricted to grades 1–6. However this school closed in 1975 and a new Rothesay Elementary School opened nearby. Community pressure resisted the demolition of the building which re-opened in 1977 as Rothesay Park Elementary School. A further reorganisation occurred in 1997 when it became a grade 6-8 middle school, now called Rothesay Park School. [1]

Recognition

Heritage Canada recognized the re-opening project with a Regional Award of Honour for Heritage Preservation in 1997. [1] During the 2005–2006 school year it was voted, by Today's Parent Magazine, one of the top 100 schools in Canada. [2]
