Agincourt School School Section #14 was formed in January 1913 to serve the rapidly growing community of Agincourt. Mr. W.H. Paterson donated 1.2 hectares of land and the following year a four room brick building was erected at a cost of $12,000. Initially, only two rooms were needed so the trustees decided to offer secondary education, which had previously been available only in Markham. In 1915, Form I (Grade 9) began and Form II was added the following year. Thus Agincourt Continuation School was begun, and offered three years of secondary education by 1920. Agincourt students still travelled to Markham for their junior Matriculation until a new high school was built in 1930 on the east side of Midland Avenue. Since then, the original schoolhouse has continued to offer elementary education.
