About our School

picture of school
Ettrick Elementary has been in the business of educating the children of this community and its surrounding boundaries for over 90 years. Locations have changed. Buildings have been constructed, demolished, enlarged, and made more functional. With all of the changes over the years, the opportunity for team teaching and additional resource staff afford new adventures and extended horizons in teaching and learning for both faculty and students.

Ettrick Elementary’s population is comprised of children from rural and suburban communities, representing diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. The close proximity of Virginia State University to Ettrick Elementary provides resource people and services in the form of consultants, student teachers, student tutors and educational media.

Serving a student population of approximately 550 students in grades pre-kindergarten through five, our school is staffed with more than 75 persons. The regular classroom teaching staff is augmented by full-time professional staff in the areas of art, music, physical education, library, reading and math specialists, speech therapy, learning disabilities, emotional disabilities, mild and moderate mental disabilities, and counseling. Full-time personnel in food services, custodial services and transportation provide support services. Additionally, there is an office manager, two school secretaries, instructional assistants, a clinic assistant, and two building administrators. Itinerant staff includes a school nurse, occupational and physical therapists, school social worker, school psychologists and educational diagnostician. Ettrick is one of four schools in Chesterfield County with a Communities in Schools Coordinator who coordinates volunteers and community services within our school.
