About Our School

  • Kensington Elementary and is located in Waxhaw, NC and serves more than 900 students in grades kindergarten through fifth. We offer Mandarin and Spanish dual language immersion programs. Mandarin immersion is offered to grades four and five and all core content is taught in Mandarin with English introduced in kindergarten. Spanish immersion begins in kindergarten (lottery process) and English is introduced in the second grade. The Knights pour every ounce of their passion into growing the whole child to be resilient, inquisitive, valued and responsible. Kensington is a big school with an even bigger heart.
