More About Us

Beacon Tree Elementary School is the Utica Community Schools' 29th elementary school.

Construction funded through the 2003 Bond Issue
Its name recognizes community's long-term commitment to the ideals of freedom made possible through public education.

The Beacon Tree, located on the former Lerich Family Farm in Shelby Township, was a symbol of freedom in the mid-1800s, as it served as a stop on the Underground Railroad.

While not the exact location of the Beacon Tree it is the site of the former Prestonville School, a one-room schoolhouse that served farm families in the community.

At 99,000 square feet, Beacon Tree Elementary is the largest elementary school in the district.
