• Cotswold Elementary School strives for students to become lifelong learners by actively pursuing academic and social competence in a multicultural environment.  Students are encouraged to be risk-takers and inquirers who develop understanding, tolerance, and appreciation of diverse traditions and beliefs.

    In order to accomplish these goals, we provide a nurturing and supportive atmosphere with high expectations to implement a challenging and comprehensive program of global education.

    We are a Magnet School of Excellence! Magnet Schools of America awarded us the honor of being a school of excellence.  We also received a special recognition award! 

    Cotswold has been selected as a 2011 National School of Character.  After winning the award in 2000, we received recognition again in 2011.

    Cotswold Elementary has been officially authorized as an International Baccalaureate World School offering the Primary Years Programme.  Cotswold is only the 13th elementary school in North Carolina to gain this distinction
