Margaret Leary Elementary School was constructed in 1973 when the “open-concept” philosophy dominated the educational world. It’s original architectural design had large open spaces with moveable dividers. Over the years, Margaret Leary’s interior design evolved to what now resembles a more traditional school with individual classrooms. The school was named in honor of Margaret Leary, an icon in the Butte School District. Starting as a stenographer in 1925 and retiring as the Financial Clerk in 1973, her dedication, work ethic, and passion to education and the Butte School District still remains the benchmark for “excellence.”
