Roy H. Guess Elementary is located in the northern section of Beaumont, Texas. The school was first established as Voth-Rosedale School in 1938. The school retained this name after joining the Beaumont Independent School District in 1949. In 1959, the school’s name was changed in honor of Mr. Roy H. Guess, longtime principal and superintendent of the school. The old building was demolished in the summer of 1986. The new Roy Guess was dedicated in October, 1986.
