About Us

Virginia Heights Elementary School sits at the top of the hill in the heart of Grandin Village. Our student population is rich with diversity and our students participate in programs such as English Language Learner supports, Regional Program for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, the VH1 Music Program, and various afterschool clubs.  All of the above enhance our four core subjects. 


Virginia Heights Elementary School partners with various local businesses and has a strong volunteer pool.  Our strength is our students and their families, our staff, and the surrounding community.
