- 1942 Students who had gone to the Halifax Academy (Sackville and Brunswick) and Bloomfield High School (Robie and Almon) streamed through the separate Boys and Girls entrances of the new Queen Elizabeth High School at Robie and Bell Rd.
- 2007 QEH students joined with their neighbours at St. Pat's High School to stream through the shiny new glass doors of Citadel High School on the former Nova Scotia Community College site at Bell, Trollope and Ahern.
- 2011 Queen Elizabeth High School building demolished to eventually be developed by the Capital District Health Authority, and meantime the site has become Common Roots Urban Farm.
The Municipal Archives has some other QEHS material donated when the school closed. Spring Garden Road Memorial Library also holds the QEHS 50th Anniversary booklet: "Queen Elizabeth High School 1943-1993: 50 years!” as well as the "Elizabethan", the school yearbook, 1943-2006. School records are held by the Halifax Regional School Board; however the Municipal Archives has the Board of School Commissioners records which would have considerable material about Queen Elizabeth High School.
