Welcome to North Cove Elementary!
Principal Mr. Rod Slagle

The VISION for North Cove Elementary is for all students to gain knowledge, foundational skills, and confidence needed to become lifelong learners. Our MISSION at North Cove Elementary is to educate all students to become responsible, lifelong learners who have the skills, knowledge, and self-confidence to be successful contributors to our competitive, global society.
 
North Cove Elementary is located in the northern section of McDowell county. We provide services to families in Ashford-North Cove, Coxes Creek, Turkey Cove, Woodlawn, and 221N to Hankins area leading to the back side of Lake James.

North Cove Elementary is the smallest elementary school in McDowell County, averaging just less than 300 students on campus daily. Due to our small size, our learning community compares to a close-knit family. As a result, staff have nurturing relationships with students and collaborative relationships with families. North Cove staff is committed to continuous improvement for the benefit of our students and our community.
