ST. ELIZABETH SETON SCHOOL
History of St. Elizabeth Seton School
St. Elizabeth Seton School was established in September 1978, to serve the Meadowvale area. The school was initially housed at St. Richard School on Copenhagen Road. In February, 1979, the school, which was built for 444 students, opened its doors for the first time. The school was originally built with a port-a-pac containing 11 classrooms. At that time the school had a play area and a soccer field for student play. As new subdivisions opened up in the growing Meadowvale area, St. Elizabeth Seton became a holding school for the new areas. Here is a map of our boundaries.
