Hi there! Welcome to the area. I hope you are enjoying Norfolk so far.

Here is what I found:

They have a pdf that you can look at Elementary School Attendance for 2011-2012.

Also, you should give them a call to confirm to make sure they haven't changed anything as far as the districts go. Here is the enrollment/registration information and they list the number of who to call to make inquiries!

For when he is in middle school: You can go to the Norfolk Public Schools website to look up your street address to determine what district/school is for Middle and High School.

I hope this helps.

If you have any questions about real estate or know anyone looking to buy or sell, I'd be happy to help them.

By way of Norview Avenue and Lafayette Boulevard to Hampton Boulevard, it is 5.5 miles and about 15 minutes by vehicle...mass transit (HRT BUS) is also available but not our new light rail, at least not yet or not in the near future. Welcome to Norfolk and ODU...I am an alumnus of ODU with a B.S. in Business Administration in 1982...Go Monarchs! Go Big Blue!

Mi Lee,
The map portion I could see did not have ODU in the viewable screen but I know Norfolk like a glove...I should, I have never lived anywhere else in all my 53 years and graduated from ODU. In a town of transients, I am a fourth generation Native! Most maps are oriented such that the North is at the top of the map as is this one. Norfolk is roughly square with a peninsula that stretches about 3 miles West called Willoughby Spit. The viewable portion of the map would be roughly 12 o'clock on the map...ODU would be located about 9 o'clock, in the westermost section of the Northern quadrant, about 3-5 miles from the map portion shown. Locals refer to the city in 3 quadrants rather than a normal 4. The West Side as it is referred to is really NorthWest and runs north and south on both sides of Hampton Blvd, Colley Ave., Granby Street and the west side of Tidewater Drive. The NorthSide or Northern End as it is referred to is primarily North of E. Little Creek Rd with a few exceptions. The East Side tends to be south of Little Creek Rd and east of Tidewater Drive. I guess you could make an argument that our fourth quadrant could be called Downtown, the southernmost portion of the city but generally considered an extension of the WestSide. Hope this helps! WELCOME to NORFOLK! ... more

I tried to look up the address here: but it is apparently too new to be on that list. Your best bet would probably be to call Norfolk Public Schools Office of Pupil Personnel at (757) 628-3931. I couldn't find a main number for NPS but perhaps this office can give you an answer or direct you to the appropriate place. ... more

Hello Marleen Rodriguez,
You can go to my website and click on Norfolk City School Locator link under resources, which will take you to the Find Your School webpage on the City of Norfolk Public Schools website. Then click on the 2011-12 Norfolk Public Schools Locator link, which will allow users to view the Elementary, Middle and High schools assigned to their street addresses for the 2011-12 school year. I hope this helps. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need further assistance.
Thank you so much,

This IS a bona fide rental for students at Old Dominion University. They do have three bedroom units next to the campus. As far as I know, it is only for students enrolled at Old Dominion University (a four-year school) and not for students attending Tidewater Community College, which also has a campus in Norfolk.

G'day, Snebitt.

On Monday, call the school [(757) 892-3270]. Ask for the Principal. Ask (1) whether they have copies and if not, (2) whether the publication is stored somewhere accessible through the internet.

Congratulations on your win and good luck finding the book.

Dear ldbrickhouse,
I did a search for attached and detached residential properties currently listed for sale in the Campostella subdivision section of Norfolk VA. Our MLS showed that at least 12 properties were currently for sale. All but 1 listed property showed Campostella Elementary as the elementary school for that subdivision. Most school districts are defined by a property address as a starting point. A link, which I have attached, to Norfolk‘s Find Your School may also be helpful. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need further assistance.
Thank you so much,

Janet Kramer answered:
Most of the Norfolk High Schools have excellent band programs. The light rail although a wonderful addition to the city is limited to the corridor from Downtown to the Newtown Rd. area. If the light rail is the major criteria, you should focus your search to neighborhoods along the existing route. All schools have programs to address special needs and gifted students too. ... more

KK German answered:
Hi Jeffrey, has a 1-10 rating system. When you are at their website, you can type in city (Virginia Beach), then look to the left hand side and unclick all options except public elementary schools. Then it will give you a list of all Virginia Beach public elementary schools and I don't believe they list in order, but the info is there.
Hope that helps! KK German, Wainwright Real Estate

(757) 628-3385 This is the school board phone number.
We as agents cannot answer that question as zoning lines for the schools are subject to change.

I like to remind my clients that we are in an city, many advantages but also some possible crimes. There is no such thing as a "safe neighborhood" anywhere. Keep alert, lock your doors, and enjoy life!

I have visited Norristown Drive-- nice open neighborhood near Little Creek has crime statistics and other useful info! If you are househunting, give me a call!
