A Brief History of Bethesda Elementary School

Bethesda Elementary School has undergone many changes in the last few years. Much of this change is related to the growth of the Bethesda community. Since 1992 Bethesda has split four times to form four new schools. Oak View opened in 1994, Heritage Elementary opened in 1999, Chapman’s Retreat Elementary opened in 2003, and Thompson’s Station Elementary opened at the beginning of the 2018 school year. For the past few years Bethesda has added over 125 new students each year. Serving a K through 5th grade population, the enrollment at Bethesda is approximately 599 students. Many new subdivisions are planned and being built for the Bethesda zone in the coming years. With the opening of Interstate 840 and the reputation of Bethesda and Williamson County Schools, we are expected to grow yearly.  Bethesda currently has students participating in 4-H, Student Council, and Chorus.
