History

On July 19, 1958 voters approved a bond election for $150,000 to construct a new elementary school. The 12-classroom school opened in September 1959 as Central Elementary School, replacing the original 1914 structure. The school is now Berkman Arts Integration Academy and is named for Claude Berkman a former teacher and principal of the school.
