Grahamwood offers students Enriched Academics in a diverse, nurturing environment, where hope and dreams are encouraged. 


Grahamwood Elementary School was built in 1949 and has been growing ever since. Historically, Grahamwood is one of the most diverse and requested elementary schools in Shelby County. In 2018, Grahamwood earned the distinguished Reward School status, the Tennessee Department of Education's highest honor. Additionally, Optional students routinely score above the 90th percentile in Reading and Math on a nationally normed achievement test. A new annex was just completed that will help us keep pace with the growing number of requests to attend our school. We encourage you to schedule a tour to see for yourself the remarkable academic and social opportunities afforded students at Grahamwood Elementary School.
