Beverly Hills Intermediate opened in September of 1964 under the leadership of Principal W.B. Smith. His 21-year tenure was followed by Tommy Baccaro (1985-92), Stephanie Wright (1992-2006), Alyta Harrell (2006-12) and Stacey Barber (2012-present). Beverly Hills was the first school in Pasadena ISD to be built specifically as an intermediate level campus. The campus opened with 625 students. Very quickly the enrollment jumped to 1,100. Miller Intermediate opened in 1968 to relieve crowding.  But population growth in the area continued to grow expanding enrollment to 1,500 students. This growth prompted the district to open Thompson Intermediate to accommodate additional students.Today the campus is home to 1,114 seventh and eighth grade students.

Recently voters approved a bond election which will provide an additional intermediate campus to relieve crowding at Beverly Hills Intermediate. The campus will be built in the Riverstone Ranch subdivision.
