The Beaver Creek Elementary School District was established in 1881 and the Rock Building of the School built in 1932 resides in the middle of the K-8 school grounds.

Today, the Beaver Creek School District has a five member Governing Board elected by the voters in the district. In statute their main responsibilities are to approve financial expenditures, approval of staff recommendations and to create policies bound by the state and federal requirements for school districts. The principal/superintend is in charge of the day to day affairs of the district.
