Malcolm Munroe Memorial Middle School was officially opened September, 1974 as Malcolm Munroe Memorial Junior High, serving grades 7 - 9. The school was named in honor of the late School Board member and County Councilor, Malcolm Munroe. The school presently houses students from all of the outlying areas of Cape Breton County, such as Gabarus, Albert
Bridge, Marion Bridge, Mira, Main-A-Dieu, East Bay, Big Pond, and the
heavily populated regions of Sydney River and Howie Centre. Our
Late French Immersion Program also draws students to our school from
outside our usual geographical boundaries. Malcolm Munroe Memorial Middle School is a well planned school consisting of twenty-six classrooms, with
provision for Art, Music, Tech Ed, and Family Studies. As well, there is
a large gymnasium for Physical Education classes. The gym is also used
outside community events. There are many extra-curricular activities
enjoyed by our students, which have resulted in the school winning
provincial titles in debating, public speaking, and music competitions.
Malcolm Munroe Memorial Middle School provides a well rounded educational
program for its students and the school has achieved success in every
facet of school and student life.
In January 2015, the Cape Breton- Victoria Regional School Board annouced that all junior highs in the board were to be reconfigured as middle schools. As a result, Malcolm Munroe started a new chapter as Malcolm Munroe Memorial Middle School, serving grades 6-8, in September 2015.
