Welcome to Green Run Elementary School's World Wide website. We are one of 55 elementary schools in the Virginia Beach City Public Schools District in the resort city of Virginia Beach, Virginia. Virginia Beach is located in southeastern Virginia on the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 18 miles east of the city of Norfolk.
When the Green Run community was designed, an elementary school was planned on a 14 acre site at the center of the Green Run community, a unique circular design. The community grew very rapidly before the school could be built, therefore a student body was organized before the building was completed. The school became operational July 1, 1975, when a principal and secretary set up an office in a conference room at nearby Holland Elementary School. Students were housed at Brookwood, Plaza, Holland, and Windsor Oaks Elementary Schools until the new building was completed. Finally, in February, 1976, Green Run Elementary School opened its doors. The school is well designed and is an excellent facility housing an outstanding educational program.
