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 outstanding. We moved into this area specifically for our daughter to be able to attend this school. We have been very pleased with every aspect of her education: Teachers, Parental Involvement, Atmosphere, Communication, Principal(s)/Leadership, etc...

Patient, kind and caring administration, teachers and staff ... as a prent of a behaviorally challanged child, they work hand-in-hand with us to ensure balance between education/socialization and behavior modification. We love this school (as do our children that attend)

I have three grown children and my fourth youngest attends Cox Mill and from all the elementary schools I have worked with in two states and three cities, Cox Mill has been the BEST.. Great school and great staff/faculty. I moved from RI directly to Cabarrus for their school system. We especially we built in Highland Creek for Cox Mill Elementary.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
