Telkwa's first school, known as the Telkwa Assisted School, was founded in 1915. A new two-room building was built in 1919 due to the growing population and the rising river levels near the site of the old school. As Telkwa's population continued to grow, it was determined that a larger school was needed, and the Telkwa Superior School was constructed. Classes began in September 1949 and the building officially opened in June 1950. Originally Grades 1 to 10 were taught here, but the higher three grades were moved to Smithers in the 1960s, leading to the school being renamed the Telkwa Elementary School.
