• Our Philosophy 

    David Cox Road Elementary is a neighborhood school proudly serving students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade.  We are a school community committed to creating safe, inclusive, academically rigorous, and student-centered learning environments that challenge students to high levels of achievement.  Through purposeful instruction in academic and social-emotional well-being, we provide opportunities for all students to achieve their personal best.  We actively support students to become problem solvers, critical thinkers, and responsible citizens. 

    David Cox Road Elementary is committed to continuous improvement.  Through the work of our staff, we seek to provide continuous feedback to evaluate student learning, support continued teacher growth, and to engage the community in the shared ownership of our students.  

    Parents are encouraged to participate in our school community as parental engagement is vital to the success of each student and our school.  We actively encourage parents to volunteer in the school, join our School Improvement Team and PTO, and to contribute to our school community.
