Our mission at Kingswood Elementary is to nurture and build a diverse community of lifelong learners who are prepared for the 21st century.

Kingswood is a Montessori STEM Magnet School. We are a Title I Distinguished School, the 2013-2014 Title I Reward School, and a NC STEM Learning Network School. Our teachers are trained to provide an interdisciplinary approach by integrating science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in all Common Core State Standards through project-based learning. Our goal is for students to be successful with our state standards in an environment that promotes critical thinking, collaboration, and active engagement while preparing for their future in our ever changing world.
