About

Who We Are...

Ethan Shive Elementary opened in the fall of August 2007. Currently, we serve approximately 450 students in the Rockwell area. Our students feed into a variety of middle and high schools, including China Grove Middle, CC Erwin Middle, Southeast Middle School, Carson High, and East Rowan High Schools.

The Shive Staff is composed of approximately 65 staff members. All of our classroom teachers and instructional support staff are highly qualified. Our staff embraces new strategies for learning content and applying technology into not only their academic pursuits, but also to real-world applications. Cooperation, collaboration, relevance and personalization are the key words in our educational model.

Fun, but interesting facts about our school include:

  • Mrs. Bondurant (the kids call her "Mrs. B") is the first and only principal that Shive has ever had
  • 22 members of our current staff have been at Shive since the doors opened in 2007
  • Our school mascot is Zinger the Stinger, who makes regular appearances at school events
  • our PTA is called the SWARM
