History: Students attended Offutt Air Base School during 1951-52 when Wherry Housing opened. The school consisted of temporary frame military buildings that were moved to Wherry to accommodate the 700 new children moving on base and needing to be educated. Bellevue Public Schools opened Betz Elementary in Fall of 1952. In May, 1951, a newspaper ballot was printed for readers to send in their votes to name the new school. The vote for South Ward produced an easy result – Betz Elementary School. Betz Elementary was named after Dr. William Betz, a physician who cared for people in the Bellevue community for over 50 years and served on the Bellevue Board of Education.
