About Summer Hill

Summer Hill Preschool

Summer Hill School, acquired from Chesterfield County by the annexation of 1942, was named for the community in which it is located. The original 1919 building was a four-room school with a half-basement. In 1937, Chesterfield County built a brick addition with classrooms and auditorium. After the annexation, a cafeteria and six primary grade classrooms were added in 1951. In 1984, the general office area was renovated and a classroom addition was built.  In 2016, Summer Hill  became home to 14 Preschool Classrooms. Currently Summer Hill houses 13 Early Childhood Education classrooms that include 1 Head Start 3 year old, 1 Head Start 4 year old, 1 Early Childhood Special Education, 1 VPI Preschool Inclusion Education, 5 VPI 4 year old, 2 VPI 3 year old, and 1 VPI mixed age classes.
