Larchmont Elementary, in the Larchmont neighborhood, also takes students from the Highland Park and Lamberts Point neighborhoods. The current building of Larchmont Elementary opened in 2017. [5] The school, previously known as Larchmont School and at one time having middle school grades,[6] began in October 1913. Originally a part of the Tanner’s Creek School Board, it became a part of the Norfolk school district after Norfolk annexed the area on January 1, 1923.[7] Its original building later became a part of the College of William and Mary.[8] This building, after the transfer to the college, was the administrative offices up until 1936.[9] In 1930 Larchmont School's next building opened, and in 1954 an addition with six classrooms had opened.[5]

Sewell's Point Elementary School was named after the landmark Sewell's Point, which in turn was named after Henry Seawell.[10] Sewell's Point Elementary is the zoned elementary school for on-property dependents living on the grounds of Joint Forces Staff College.[11]
