Exploring our past
Beaver Technology Center for Math and Science, 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, opened the doors to Edith Beaver Elementary in 1960 for 279 students and 12 teachers. The teachers taught all subjects to their 30 plus students in their classes. Within five short years, Beaver's population swelled to 650 students, eventually maxing out with over 800 students.
Beaver Elementary became Beaver Technology Center for Math and Science in 1997 to attract students with a special interest in math, science, and technology.
