On November 19, 1934, the Columbiana County Board of Education passed a resolution establishing the Beaver Local Rural School District.  The district is a consolidation of seven existing rural school districts at that time.  The district was named after the Little Beaver Creek, which runs through most of the district.  Later, the name was changed to the Beaver Local School District.  The high school was established in 1958.


The Beaver Local School District is a public school district serving Elk Run, Madison, Middleton and St. Clair townships in southeastern Columbiana County in the U.S. state of Ohio.

The Beaver Local School District is one of the largest rural area districts in the state, covering most of the four townships, including the villages of Rogers and Calcutta.  The total area is nearly 144 square miles.


Beaver Local School District opened a new K-12 facility in 2015 which features modern learning communities with flexible learning space.  The building also features cutting edge technology throughout.

Beaver Local School District is a public school enrolling 1776 students in grades K-12: Elementary (K-4) - 633 students, Middle School (5-8) - 558 students; High School (9-12) - 585 students.  Each grade level features six (6) classroom teachers K-8 with instructional specialists throughout.


Beaver Local works to ensure students are provided varied learning opportunities in both traditional and student centered learning to help them reach their potential.  Teachers have the ability to use a variety of resources which enable them to extend learning beyond the traditional school house walls and allow students to have ownership of their learning.  Students are encouraged to be creative and demonstrate mastery of content in a variety of means.  We continue to strive to grow as professionals as education and technology continue to change so that we can provide students an educational experience that prepares them for the outside world while also fostering an atmosphere that encourages students to run into our school.
