Scottsville Elementary was established in 1908 and designed to serve both elementary and secondary students. By 1913 the school had received full accreditation from the department of education as well as the University of Virginia. The school experienced several moves and changes, including redistributing grades 10-12 to Albemarle High School in 1967, and in 1972 the school was destroyed by Hurricane Agnes. In 1974 the school was rebuilt in a pod shape to weather future storms and in 1981 an addition was completed forming the building that stands today.[citation needed]


In 2009, the county had commissioned a study to see if there would be savings in consolidating Scottsville with Red Hill Elementary School and Yancey Elementary School. The idea was rejected because of community support for all three schools.[3] Yancey would be later decommissioned and turned into a community center.

Additions and improvements

A large renovation is underway and intended to be ready by the start of the 2021-2022 academic year. [4]

Description from 2019 State of the Division Annual Report

"Scottsville Elementary School is a place where students and staff work together to learn and grow, just like the trees surrounding our school. Our students volunteer at our local Jefferson Area Board for Aging (JABA) facilities and, every day, older students mentor their younger peers and both benefit from the experience. We engage every student through their interests as we empower them to own their learning. We have developed relationships with the Town of Scottsville, Scottsville Soccer, and several local churches. This year, we have a special focus on improving opportunity and achievement as we learn more about Trauma-Informed Teaching." [5]
