Roseisle School is an exceptional example of a modestly sized, though finely detailed, village school. The dignified design by Winnipeg architect E.D. Tuttle, which incorporates elements of the Classical Revival style, and the well-preserved brick finish, complemented by generous limestone accents, lend the structure formality and substance. Closed in 1992 due to declining enrolment, this impressive building, with its large, sheltered schoolyard, offers a glimpse of Roseisle’s busier past and the importance which the community attached to meeting its educational needs.
