L. M. Montgomery is located in East Royalty, a community in the city of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. The initials L. M. are used in place of Lucy Maud, as Maud preferred to be referred to by her initials rather than her full name. The name of the school was chosen by a student, Lisa Gairns, in Carol MacMillan’s grade six class at the former East Royalty Elementary School
