The first school in Beer Yaakov was established in 1910. Before that, the students had to walk or ride a donkey to the school in Rishon Lezion.
The mothers in the locality demanded the establishment of a school, while the men claimed that there was no point in establishing a school for seven students. Yitzhak Yitzhaki, the son of Rabbi Yaakov Yitzhaki, was friends with the writer and poet Chaim Nachman Bialik, who was in charge of education in those years, and was therefore sent to meet with him in order to obtain permission to establish a school. At first the students studied under a tree, then built a structure of mud bricks.
The permanent building of the school, erected in this place, had 2 rooms. In each room 3-4 students from different age groups studied and one teacher taught all the students. The original building, which was one storey, was added more floors over the years, and today it serves as the local council building.
