About Our School


To our Coulwood Middle School families:

Coulwood offers a warm, supportive school climate, coupled with high expectations to increase each child's academic, social and emotional skills.  Every member of the Coulwood staff is dedicated, courteous and highly capable.  It is our mission and intention for all students to be successful and attain high academic levels in middle school.  Our educational goal is to prepare students to become high-achieving lifelong learners.

Our instructional planning model is rooted in teaming and research-based teaching practices.  Through content-mapping and common assessments, we modify instructions to meet our students' individual needs.  We gather data to identify students' learning pace, and we develop interventions to address their learning needs.

In addition to the regular curriculum, Coulwood offers a diverse range of extracurricular opportunities--from nationally touring performing arts groups in band and orchestra to our regional award-winning Battle of the Books team.  We also provide many leadership opportunities for our students.

Community and family involvement at Coulwood is important to the continued growth and success of our school.  Our staff communicates regularly with parents through multiple media sources.  In addition, we offer monthly parent-support workshops and test-prep sessions before each state testing period.  Coulwood reaches out beyond our school doors by hosting a community breakfast for local senior citizens in December and by promoting community-service activities involving our students throughout the year.

We are grateful to have many partners who give time, talent and treasure to our school. For example, Communities In Schools offers human-service support and college preparations for our students and many local businesses also invest time and resources in our school.  This year five local churches have partnered with us to help beautify our campus.

Coulwood cherishes its rich heritage in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community.  Since 1962, we have offered quality educational leadership and programs for all who have entered our doors.  Please join us in celebrating our past accomplishments while working hard to support our efforts to build a better and brighter future for each and every student.
