I was blessed beyond measure in 1987 when I was hired to teach at Coldwater Elementary School. I love going to work every day. I love the people in the community. The Coldwater community surrounds the school and embraces it wholeheartedly. I could never imagine teaching anywhere else. I love my principal and all of my co-workers...precious people and a wonderful place to work.

Coldwater Elementary School is one of the best schools around. Although it has been annexed into the Oxford City School System, there is still that community feeling to the school. The teachers and the principal are awesome. I am so proud my child can attend such a wonderful school.

Coldwater Elementary School is an awesome school. I would most definitely say it is one of the best ,if not the best elementary school in Alabama. The principal and teachers are great and really get to know parents and students. The teachers are excellent and strive to give the best education possible.
