School History
The stone building, which is the original part of the current school structure, was opened in 1941. Three separate additions were completed by 1994. The school was named for a local and prominent school inspector, Archie Stouffer, whose family legacy still exists in various parts of Haliburton County.

Parent Participation
Archie Stouffer ES has an active School Council which has provided funding towards three sets of playground equipment; long jump pits, soccer posts, and baseball field refurbishing. There is also a large number of volunteers who assist with various school programs.
