Hive History

Over 50 Years of Excellence in Education

Bids were taken on October 18, 1968, and the doors opened  February 1971.  Architect Rene C. Aybar designed the 80,000 square foot building.  It has 24 general education rooms,  2 kindergarten rooms, facilities for art, music,  physical education, and a cafeteria in the multi-purpose room.  The staff spent the weekend moving into their new rooms. On Monday 800 students arrived  carrying books and materials from their old schools (Prairieton, Pimento, Fuqua, and Maryland). The school is named after highway US 41.  It was known as Dixie Highway because it took you to the southern states.  Dixie Bee was renovated in 2007.

During the summer of 2007, Dixie Bee Elementary School was renovated.  The updates included a new gymnasium, art room, music room, two new kindergarten rooms, fresh interior paint colors, a new office area and a new lounge space for the teachers.  The building also had many exterior renovations.
