Neal Elementary School works hard to provide each students the best education possible. The teachers work extra with students who need more attention and they also care about the students. The principal is also extremely involved in the students' progress in school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Alabama used the Alabama Reading and Mathematics Test (ARMT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math. The ARMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alabama. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
