Oak Grove-Bellemeade opened the doors to the new building in January 2013. The school has come together from their separate buildings where the school's name originated. Currently, Oak Grove-Bellemeade Elementary School serves approximately 675 students in PreK - 5.
The 2nd-5th grade building, Oak Grove on Ingram Ave. was originally named for the community in which it was located. The original building started as an eight-room building which was annexed from Chesterfield County in 1914, the year after it was constructed. As the community grew, so did the school building through many additions.
The Kindergarten & 1st grade building, Bellemeade, built in 1918, was also named for the community in which it was located. It was on Webber Ave. next to the current building.
Oak Grove Elementary School was established in 1913.
Oak Grove Elementary School was acquired in 1914 (by annexation from Chesterfield County).
