History: In 1951, after a successful $30,000 bond vote, the Bellevue Board of Education purchased three sites for future schools to meet the demands of a rapidly growing community. One was for the North Ward School, which was constructed and opened in October of 1955. In the spring of 1955, the Board voted unanimously to name North Ward as Bertha Barber Elementary School after Miss Barber who was in her 44th year of teaching in Bellevue. Miss Bertha Barber holds the all-time service record of all Bellevue teachers, 45 years of teaching in Bellevue.
