School History

In 1950, the Montgomery County Board of Education recommended building another elementary school in the western section of Rockville to relieve overcrowding in Rockville, Potomac, and Gaithersburg. A site in the Hunting Hill area was selected and in 1953, construction began. The new school opened in August 1954 with Albert Gibson as the principal. Most faculty members and all of the school children from grades K through 5 from the old Rockville/Park Street Elementary School were shifted to this school. According to the Montgomery Sentinel, the school opened with 25 teachers, 767 students, and 20 classrooms, yet it didn't have a name.

The students voted to name the school West Rockville Elementary School. The school was officially named West Rockville Elementary on May 23, 1955. In June 1982, the Board of Education passed a resolution to rename the school Beall (pronounced "bell") Elementary after the Beall family. The name was changed in conjunction with the closure of Hungerford Park Elementary School (Park Street closed before Hungerford, and Hungerford was renamed Hungerford Park), because school administrators wanted the school to feel new to everyone.
