My son is in third grade & he really enjoys school.The teachers he's had every year have been very helpful and have let me know when there was a problem.When it comes to safety and discipline they are very strict. All in all it is a very good school.

This is my childs 3rd year at BES. We have always been very happy. This year is very different, I feel like I don't have much knowledge of my childs progress or lack of, since I do not get graded papers sent home on a regular basis. Overall BES is a good school, they are just going through a rough time, because of personal problems of a staff member. The teachers seem to have have low morale because of the situation.

My son has gone to this school for 2 years and I have encountered some great teachers but I also feel that the admin. staff does not keep parents as involved as they should especially if you do not have the correct last name. If it was not for the teachers, some parents would be lost. I work and stay as involved as I can but can not be there everyday. There needs to be more activities for children. I gave books to the library and felt like it was an inconvenience to them.

BES needs to improve on the way they teach values in the school. This is a learning enviroment. Children should not have to witness their assistant teacher chasing after a teacher. When such acts become the gossip of children as well as the community, then the school needs to take action instead of turning its head and accepting this behavior. BES teacher's need to realize that they are our children's role models and need to behave as such.

BES is a great school. I've had children atttending there for 5 years. There staff is sensational. They're all very caring and helpful with the students as well as the parents. Improvements- Parents need to get more involved.

BES could be a great school if there was more control over the kids. Lots of underlying racial issues that are not addressed. Not a very good social environment which in turn doesn't allow for a great 'learning' environment.

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.
