The Cut Knife High School officially opened June 7, 1966. Mr. Roy Erickson was the Principal with Mr. Nestor Fransoo as Vice-Principal. This new building was erected to replace the old four-room high school that could no longer house all the students. By the early 1970s, Cut Knife High School had a student population of approximately 300 ~ 325. The mid-'70s saw a new addition of music rooms, Industrial Arts room, and the Home Economics room. In 1989, the school gymnasium was damaged from a tornado, which resulted in one wall having to be knocked down, and then re-built with other walls being strengthened.
In September 2019, the Cut Knife Elementary School staff and students joined with Cut Knife High School as the two schools merged and became one, Cut Knife Community School.
Our school has been very well represented in sporting events throughout the years. We have had many students win provincial standings in Track and Field.
Cut Knife Community School has the good fortune to be situated in an area for our students to access many facilities. Atton's Lake Golf course and Cross Country Ski and Running trails; Table Mountain alpine skiing, Country Lanes Bowling Alley, Cut Knife School of Dance, Cut Knife Curling rink, and the Cut Knife Civic centre.
