Our youngest students’ adventure starts with either the Traditional Pathway (available at all 16 elementary schools), Online Catawba (completely virtual or blended instructional model), or the Spanish Immersion Pathway (available at 3 schools) where students learn all the North Carolina Standards . . . just in Spanish!

Regardless of the program, your young student will enjoy a comprehensive education in reading, math, writing, art, music, physical education, and media literacy/technology — the perfect recipe for a blue ribbon education!  

You'll find that our educators are making education better each day by creating engaging learning experiences that prepare our students to reach their academic and personal goals. We're also working to help mold responsible citizens in a global society.

Our innovative schools provide unique educational experiences with a rigorous curriculum to ensure your child's success throughout their school career and beyond. 

There are so many exciting things happening in Catawba County Schools that will have a positive impact on your elementary student. Take a look around!

Our Curriculum is Rich and Robust

Our elementary experience provides a foundation for learning for all students. We focus on foundational skills in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies.

In addition, art, music, physical education, health, and media and technology play an important role in our students' ability to think creatively, globally, and in a healthy manner.  

Core Curriculum

Specials/Encore Curriculum

Our elementary schools focus on educating the whole child by actively engaging students in subjects and activities that broaden their horizons and expose them to new activities that may become lifelong pastimes. With this in mind, our elementary students rotate through “Specials” each week that include PE, Music, and Art. Some schools also offer Spanish and/or Drama. These classes are taught by our “specialist” certified teachers who have a passion for their subjects.
