Located in the scenic Appalachian Mountains within the foothills of eastern Wythe County, we are a graded public school serving children in grades Pre-K through 5th.  Originally built in 1954, our school was named Robert S. Sheffey School after the Reverend Robert Sawyers Sheffey.   An addition was built in 1974, that allowed Sheffey Elementary School to begin serving the Ivanhoe and Piney communities.  Additional space for our Title 1 program was completed in 1998.  A full renovation was completed in  October 2014.  This renovation consisted of closing open classrooms, adding a new gymnasium,  and a community workout room.   In addition to a new computer lab and classrooms were added, while saving the original gymnasium floor (a valuable piece of history).
