A bit of history: When the school was built in 1947 it was called the Valcartier Intermediate School. Sixty-six students attended the first year. In 1965, the Grade 8 and 9 students were sent to Quebec High School, and then in 1967, the Grade 6 and 7 students were sent to Holland School. The name of the school was then changed to Valcartier Elementary School.
