    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.
