Cumberland Heights Elementary School is located across the Cumberland River in southern Montgomery County. When first opened, the school served students in first through eighth grade, totaling less than 200 students. The school has undergone several updates throughout its history, including the addition of two army barracks as classrooms! In 1989, Cumberland Heights Elementary became a K-5 school. In 1998 the new facilities opened not far from the original building. Dr. Tonya Cunningham became Cumberland Height's principal in 2005. Faculty, staff, students and families work together at Cumberland Heights, following the school motto; One Team, One Dream, One Goal!
