Mission & Vision Statements


The mission of the Oxford City School System, the focal point of a growing, diverse community, is to ensure the academic success of all students through a student-centered system of individualized instruction, highly qualified staff, exemplary facilities, and effective use of all resources.


Our vision is to be the leader in all aspects of education.  From the time a child enters kindergarten until graduation we want to provide the best instruction, extra-curricular activities, facilities and services enabling our students to become productive successful citizens.

Coldwater Elementary School received ARI certification in 2002.  Staff members also received Alabama Reading Academy Training in 2003. CES is an AMSTI trained school as well. 


Parent/Grandparent volunteers are an important part of our school climate.  Volunteers are always needed to assist teachers by helping in the workroom on material preparation.  Volunteers are assigned to work on one of the scheduled volunteer days (M, W, F). If you can help in this area, please contact the school office at (256) 241-3870.
