Euclid Elementary School

Euclid Elementary School resonates with nearly every Ontarian. This has been the case for almost a century now, as the school has been a staple in the community since the day it was founded.

The school was founded at 1120 South Euclid Avenue, but the current building was not built until 1938 as part of the government’s Works Progress Administration programs to help the country recover from the Great Depression.

The school building features flat, arched and gable roofs covered with Spanish tile. Initially, a historic building survey from 1984 determined the building’s architectural style was Hispano-moresque, but today it is considered Spanish revival.

Over the years, the building has been modified to meet safety codes, but it still remains largely the same as it was in 1938.

Euclid Elementary School still has its doors open today as a public school that is part of the Ontario-Montclair School District.
