History

Toliver

Edna L. Toliver Intermediate School has 600 students in grades 2 to 5. Toliver Intermediate School is located in Danville Kentucky.


In 1912 the Danville City Schools bought the old Hogsett Academy for boys and created the Maple Avenue Elementary School where it housed grades 1 -5.  In 1930 the old school was torn down to make way for a larger and more up to date building.  The three story building began as a school for grade 1 - 5.  In 1936 the sixth graders were added to the school. 

 In 1957 when Mrs. Toliver was retiring after 33 years as principal of Maple Avenue School and years also as a teacher, the Danville Board of Education decided to rename this school in her honor. 

In 2018 the Danville Schools consolidated the three elementary schools (Toliver, Hogsett and Jennie Rogers) into Toliver Intermediate School (2nd- 5th) and Mary G. Hogsett Primary School (preschool - 1st).
