Our School

Morse Place School is built on the site of one of the original schools in the division. Salisbury School was opened in 1915. Morse Place Junior High was opened in 1959. In 1992 the two schools amalgamated to form Salisbury Morse Place.  In 2020, the school name changed to École Salisbury Morse Place, to recognize the dual track programming.  An English program is offered from K-8 and a French Immersion program from K-5.  Student enrolment is approximately 750 students from kindergarten to grade 8.
