Elizabeth Traditional Elementary School is an institution that has provided outstanding educational training for young children since opening its doors in 1912. We have offered a Traditional K-5 magnet program since 1977. The school’s building structures, name, and curriculum have been altered over the years to meet various demands on a diverse and ever-shifting population. One quality of the school and its staff has remained constant: Its commitment to a solid educational foundation for all students.
ETES is located in the Elizabeth neighborhood at the intersection of Park Drive, East 5th Street, and Travis Avenue, and backs up to Independence Park. It is near Presbyterian Hospital, with the Uptown Charlotte skyline in clear view and in close proximity. The location of the school has been significant in its historical beginnings. ETES maintains valuable relationships with local community organizations and businesses that act as partners with the school.
