This school is great. I have to three kids that all go there and are doing very well, but don't get me wrong. My kids all have there own struggle with certain assignments but the teacher are so great about trying to help their students understand the materials. All the teachers a great with communicating with the parents. They really care about their students and strive to see them succeed.

My son went to Kindergarten 2007 - 2008 at McGees and it was a great basis to his education. The teacher was wonderful, took time with each of the students, when I communicated with her she was more than willing to help. The office staff was nice as well. I can definitely see the school wants/encourages parent involvment. It was a great atmosphere for my son's first year of school and he's looking forward to next year.

We were redistricted to McGees last year from Polenta. Had more than one child enrolled at McGees. Thought the two schools could not be much different. What a mistake. Teachers at McGees were by and large, LAZY compared to Polenta. Did not feel academics OR athletics were up to par at Mcgees. NO participation in Presidential Fitness program with unresponsive PE teacher and no support from 'Weakly' principal. Accelerated Reading was a big deal at Polenta, but apparently nothing special at McGees. Oh, we offer the program, we just leave it unstructured--the kids can participate if they want to. My advice is home school your kids, but you can use Mcgees for day care if you're unlucky enough to be in their district.--Now, Polenta was not without flaws, but this review is about McGees

My child has gone to Mcgees from k-4. The teachers and staff are amazing. They take the time to get to know the parents and students. There is alot of involvment between the staff and parents. All of the teachers are very one on one with the studentThe school has an excellant computer lab as well as a great media center. I really cannot say enough good things about the school or staff.

In my opinion McGees Crossroads Elem. is an overall great school. I feel very comfortable when I come into the school and I am very confident that my child is getting the best education available.

This is a 'family-centered' school. The teachers and administration want the parents to be involved. They care about the children and it is reflected in their work habits.

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.
