Notes
Survey number HABS OH-689
Significance: Beehive School symbolizes the consolidation of American education systems, as well as transitions in society, as the process of urbanization took place. Of the 166 school buildings operated by the Cleveland Board of Education at the height of its school system, Beehive is the only one which was originally constructed as a township school, subsequently enlarged as a municipal school by an integrated suburban village, and finally annexed by a large urban school system along with the village. The school is thus a rare survivor of an important trend in American educational history: consolidation of school districts from rural to community to metropolitan. Of the dozen or so school building which were acquired by the Cleveland school system as the city annexed smaller communities, the others have all been replaced by more modern structures.
