I currently have 2 students at Cox Mill at one coming next year. My rising 4th and 3rd graders have been there since kindergarten and we have been thrilled with our school. It is like private school attention and quality. The teachers and entire staff are wonderful. Also, there are so many parents that volunteer to help. We are so lucky.

A parent posted this: "Best environment for learning of kids in K-5 in State!!! " And I couldn't agree more!!! This is a wonderful school with an exceptional staff that encourages excelling academically and building character to the max! My child requires special needs and they have all gone out of their way to make this a great environment for all students. The amount of progress I see in my child everyday is astounding.

Cox Mill is an amazing school filled with caring and respected teachers, administrators that listen to the teachers and are comfortable with parents and a warm, friendly and fun student population. We celebrate our differences and what each child brings to the table. We work together to get things accomplished, like the new playground for the exceptional children. When teachers work in synergy, they can get many monumental things accomplished. When kids pool their loose coins, they can raise money for Juvenile Diabetes and resources for Kenya. Teachers embrace the strong spirit which adds fun to learning and creative approaches to study. Their enthusiasm, hard work and effort make Cox Mill a gem of an Elementary School!

Cox Mill Elementary School is full of caring, loving and dedicated teachers. You can't walk down the halls without a friendly 'Hello' from one of the administration. The teachers are hard working and dedicated to growing their students year after year. Not to mention the kids love their school and have the spirit to show it! There is nothing like attending the annual teacher basketball game. It sells out every year and gives the students the opportunity to cheer for their teachers and school. I have been very pleased with Cox Mill for the past 2 years and am excited for the years to come.

I absolutely LOVE Cox Mill Elementary. My child is a kindergarten. From Open House forward, she has been received warmly with smiles and fun. She loves to go to school and anticipates each day with excitement. The parents involvement at Cox Mill is astronomical. I can not brag enough about the first PTO meeting turnout AND the amount of emails from parents responding to volunteer requests. Go Cox Mill!!

1. Our teachers take time out of their own schedule to inspire and bond with our children. Our principals and teachers created a free, after school intramural football program for 5th graders. It was great fun and exercise - not to mention the team building it demonstrated. The teachers and admistrators did this on their own time. They are committed to helping our children succeed in many different aspects of life. 2. In times of an unfortunate bus accident, our school displayed exceptional communication skills, caring and a sense of community. There is not enough space here to truly express how they communincated, calmed and consoled parents and children. They were proactive and informative. They made sure all the parents knew where there children were - whether it be at the hospital or the police station awaiting a safe pickup. I will never forget their sense of responsibility and concern for our kids and parents.

The teachers are absolutely excellent. Not only do they go above and beyond to make sure kids 'get it', and to make sure kids are being challenged wherever they are, but in the words of my 5th grader, 'My teacher is the best because she really cares about me. I know because she came to see my church play.' It is not uncommon at all to see Cox Mill teachers showing their support for their students at sporting events or performances. We love our school!

We absolutely love this school. I have 2 children here and have always been impressed by the staff. I think especially of the principal, Phil Hull, who genuinely seems to care about the kids. It's not unusual at all to pull up during school hours and see him outside playing intramurals with the kids. I really feel like my children are in a top notch school as good as or better than many private schools and are getting the best education NC has to offer.

This is a fabulous school! We moved from out of state last summer where my children attended a top notch elementary school, so I was very concerned about schools in this area. We could not have hoped for a better transition. The teachers are wonderful and the parent involvement is exceptional!

I have not been pleased with this school. My daughter went to this school and she also did not like this school. She had a hard time adjusting to this school. Teachers and staff were rude to me and my daughter when I went to register her for school. It took me two full days to get her registered for school, when it should have only taken a morning to have my daughter registered.

Administration does not treat all families equally. confidentiality is not a priority at this school, you can walk in the front office and observe children being disciplined on a daily basis. This should be done out of ear and sight of the public. Front office should be more professional. Teachers quality is good, but again you can walk down the hall on any given day and hear discussion about one of their students. In short the administration should lead by example.

This is a top-notch school with absolutely NO problems whatsoever with cultural bias- obviously someone has had a personal experience that was unfavorable, but my children have gone through 3 years at Cox Mill covering every grade level and All teachers and principal staff are of teh highest quality. This si one of teh best elementary schools in the county for test grades as wll and I would highly recommend to anyone that asks. Feel very comfortable about safety, no cultural bias, top-notch teaching skills, unbelievable parental involvement, and an overall care for all students that attend the elementary.

I have to say that I am not pleased with Cox Mill E.S. There is obvious cultural bias taking place there. I am not the first parent to notice this, and I'm sure I won't be the last. Much of it stems from the top, Principal Hull, who shows little concern for children of color at Cox Mill E.S. I would not recommend this school.
