Exploring our past
Beaver Technology Center for Math and Science, formerly Beaver Elementary, is named after Mrs. Edith Beaver. Mrs. Beaver and her husband, James Beaver, farmed the land where the school stands. Luke Abbett, the first principal of this school opened the doors to Edith Beaver Elementary in 1960 for 279 students and 12 teachers. The teachers taught everything: library, music, art, core subjects, and lunch and recess duty for the 30 plus students in their classes. Within five short years, Beaver's population swelled to 650 students, eventually maxing out with over 800 students.
21st century learners
Beaver Elementary became Beaver Technology Center for Math and Science in 1997 to attract students with a special interest in math, science, and technology. Beaver Tech provides a unique math and science curricula implemented through the extensive use of technology. Working in collaborative groups, students conduct complex science experiments, solve hands-on math problems, and learn to use technology for real-world applications.
