About Our School

China Grove Elementary is located in China Grove, North Carolina, a progressively growing town in Southern Rowan County.  The school is situated on a 13.3 acre campus at 514 South Franklin Street.  
The original building was completed in 1924 with a three story brick annex being added in 1950.  In 1984 five classrooms were added and two large teaching stations were converted into a media center.  In 1986 a new cafeteria and multi-purpose room were built.  The latest addition was in 1996, when another two story section was added on with a major renovation to the original building.
