This large school represents a milestone in education in Manitoba; it came from a resolution by various school divisions and the Department of Education that many high school students would excel with special occupational training rather than regular academic courses. Supported by these partners and the federal government, the large site was secured and the design developed for 700 students in a wide variety in areas of study, with all its specialized space. The school opened in 1967, named to commemorate local labour leader Robert B. Russell.
R. B. Russell High School offers a remarkably diverse range of courses of study, keyed to respond nimbly to the job market and supply those skills to prepare students for employment; students come from across the city and province, on a part-time, full time or night class basis.
