WELCOME to Kitty Hawk Elementary School, a North Carolina Honor School of
Excellence three years in a row.  With over 60 years of rich history, Kitty Hawk
Elementary School provides a quality education for all students. By linking the 
North Carolina Common Core and Essentials Standards for Learning with 21st

and rigorous curriculum in a positive learning environment for students at all 
levels. Our expectations for academic achievement and behavior are high, and 
our students and parents understand that we will work together and do whatever 
it takes to meet the needs of every student. We believe that relationships are 
important, and our staff works proactively to build an atmosphere of mutual 
respect that promotes learning.  Our faculty and staff subscribe to a philosophy 
of reflective thinking that leads toward continuous improvement. At Kitty 
Hawk Elementary School, our school motto is “By reaching high, we fly.” We 
continuously assess progress toward our school goals so we can reach higher 
and fly further than ever before.
