Central Public School was one of the original primary schools in town. It’s now a City of Brampton Recreation Centre.
The students of Castlemore’s one-room schoolhouse, 1930.
These children were the students at Huttonville’s one-room schoolhouse, 1948. Huttonville is at Queen and Mississauga Road, with the newer public school on Embleton Road.
Brampton High School was located on Centre Street, then the far eastern edge of Brampton.
As the Town of Brampton grew, so did its high school. It was eventually joined by a second high school, Central Peel Secondary School, in 1960. Central initially served students from outside of what’s now downtown Brampton. Brampton Centennial Secondary School, opened in 1967, replaced Brampton High entirely.
