About CSPS

SCHOOL HISTORY

Cool Spring Primary School, located in rural King William County, Virginia, serves children in grades pre-kindergarten through second. Prior to its construction, all students in pre-school through fifth grade attended Acquinton Elementary School. With rising enrollment, Acquinton became overcrowded. Cool Spring Primary School was constructed next to Acquinton Elementary School, and all students in pre-school through second grade moved to the new school in January 2003. Upon completion of second grade, Cool Spring students now move “next door” to Acquinton and continue their education in grades three through five. The name, “Cool Spring Primary,” was selected after researching the history of the land on which the school was built. The property, known as the “Cool Spring Tract,” was sold in 1916 to C.C. Caldwell. In 1929, the property, then known as “Cool Spring Farm,” was sold to the Chesapeake Foundation. The land was eventually acquired by King William County for use as a school site.
