Map It!


Arrowhead Elementary, located in the Kempsville, VA area, is a success story that began more than 40 years ago when the original school building opened in 1964, just a year after the City of Virginia Beach was created. The doors opened to 952 children, in grades 1-7, making Arrowhead the largest elementary school in Virginia Beach (at the time) built at a cost of .5 million dollars. The school quickly became a vital part of the community, establishing itself not only as a leader in education but as a center for community activities. In 1964, Arrowhead also opened its doors to the community as a Friday night recreation center for children. The Block Mother Program originated with Arrowhead parents that same year.

In November 2004, after a 2-year construction period, Arrowhead moved into a totally new facility located on the same grounds as the former building. The new building is larger and is recognized for its state-of-the-art technology and its warm, friendly atmosphere.
To understand the neighborhood concept, one need only to ride down Susquehanna Drive on a PTA night and see families walking together to the meeting. Families are involved in the education of their children. Strong educational leadership, a caring community, and involved parents all contribute to the quality of education at Arrowhead.
