• Picture of Northwest Elementary

    Welcome to Northwest Elementary School (NWS), a proud part of the Lenoir County Public Schools (LCPS) district. We are located in Kinston, NC and serve children from kindergarten through fifth grade. Northwest strives to provide a safe and welcoming learning environment where outstanding staff and hardworking students feel comfortable… someplace our feathery mascot, Baldwin the Eagle, can call home.

    Aware that our contributions to your child will have a long-lasting effect on your child’s education now, and in the future, our number one focus is always the well-being of our students. We teach all students the importance of healthy relationships, a healthy mind, and a healthy body. We believe it is our duty to cultivate the best possible learning environment in order to provide each student with an opportunity to an equal education. In light of this, please let us know what we can do better serve your child and our community.
