Shady Grove Has a fabulous physical education program with a variety of activities available. The school has a friendly environment, with caring teachers and staff. By far, Shady Grove is the best school in Davie county.

We moved to NC from the West Coast. Moving to any new place is always hard but when you have a child that is going to be attending Elementary school I think it just adds that much more pressure to a parent. We are so very thankful that we have found such a GREAT school for our son. We love the atmosphere, the parent involvement, the staff, and to top it off my son LOVES his teacher's and is truly happy here. Thank you to Shady Grove for making the move a smooth transition!!! We love it here!!

The teachers and staff are enthusiastic, energetic, and encouraging. My family has been involved in several other elementary schools (in other states) and Shady Grove stands head and shoulders above the others. My child is happy and successful here.

The school is excellent, I recently moved from another state and have found the academic requirements pleasantly challenging. The parents are very involved (I have never been to a PTO meeting with so many people!) and the teachers work VERY hard. I am thrilled.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
