In 30 years of teaching, this is the most qualified and dedicated staff I have ever seen. The teachers, administrators, and support staff do everything possible--even at the expense of their own money and time--to make sure every child's needs are met. Struggling students are provided with extra support, and advanced students are provided opportunities to progress further.

Whoever said Albemarle Rd Elem is a "great" school is seriously misinformed. Albemarle Rd Elem can't even perform at CMS's minimal levels. See for yourself: http://www.cms.k12.nc.us/cmsdepartments/accountability/spr/Progress%20Reports/2010-2011/Albemarle%20Road%20Elementary%20Academy%20of%20World%20Studies.pdf

this school does not have the same curriculum as the rest of CMS. My child went there for 2 yrs and she is in 3rd grade now. For 1st grade, she didn't get homework, spelling tests or grew educationally. All they are obsessed with is getting those EOG scores up there. They've been a title 1 school for years. But doesn't success start from day 1? Kindergarteners go to 1st grade barely reading. 1st grade seems like a continuation of Kindergarten. I'm just disgusted with their teaching style. If your kid is advanced, your kid will be stunted and slowed down till their peers can catch up to their level. and still, 1st grade and 2nd grade still don't get sentences to write, words to learn and look up or spelling homework. My daughter left there barely spelling at grade level. Embarassment.

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.
