HistoryJefferson County School District #8 was organized in 1867 and was an elementary school housed in various buildings at 7101 West 38th Avenue. In 1924, a separate elementary building was constructed just west of the main building. District #8 built this facility at the time R-1 was being organized and was considered to be the "finest to be had." It was named Reed Street Elementary and later renamed Stevens Elementary in tribute to Paul C. Stevens who had supervised its construction as Superintendent of Wheat Ridge District #8.
