In the spring of 1977, the Virginia Beach School Board approved construction of a new school to house the increasing school population in the Kempsville area. The School Board voted unanimously to the name the elementary school Indian Lakes Elementary, which was located in the Indian Lakes area of the city. The school would house students from the subdivisions of Indian Lakes, Lake Christopher and Brigadoon. During construction students were bused to Old Donation Elementary for two school years: 1977-1978 and 1978-1979. Indian Lakes Elementary officially opened on September 4, 1979, and operated with a student population of 1,086 in grades one through six. Currently Indian Lakes is a K5 school with approximately 600 students and two preschool classes.
