All of the staff have been wonderful and my child loves it. I like that it is a smaller school and he doesn't get lost.

Being involved with this school for the past 5 yrs with another 5 to go, I could not have asked for a better team (which include a variety of teachers from k-5th and EC teachers (standing O), librarian and computer teacher, teachers that my kids didn't even have a class with. I have had dealing with 4 different schools in the county I would not want to have to leave Catawba Heights Elem. for any reason. Love this school, teachers and this year the principal is excellent (stern, professional, reliable and easy to talk to).

This is a great school, not only because of it's size, but also because of the caring teachers that work with our children. If there is one thing we are concerned about, it is the darkness. The halls seem so dark during the day and we feel like the county has just forgotten our little school! We would like to see more effort put into our school by the county, as well as the state!

My son is about to go to middle school. During the time he has been here he has had great teachers. I always tell people that this is a great school. I wouldn't want my child to go to another elementary school.

The school is fine and my children for the most part enjoyed going there. We only had a problem with one teacher. We tried to work it out with the teacher, then the principal, and finally the superintendent. In the end we had to take the children out of the school for the year because the pricipal would not move my child to another teacher's classroom. The next year they went back and did not have a problem since then.

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.
