Oakdale Elementary has alot of heart, my granchildren love it. Teachers and staff have always been open and freindly. When the school seen something that may be an deterent for learning, there was a meeting and more that one person from the school showed up for support, to ask how can we help. When I drop of my granchildren or visit the school, there are freindly smiling faces that I see-showing me the right people are here and enjoying their job with our precious children. Over all a great school, very happy with it. One thing to impove is the crosswalk to the school, sometimes the gate is locked and children have to walk around through the parking lot when crossing with the crossing gaurd.

This school is terrible. The new principle lacks leadership and is oblivious to what goes on around her, nothing ever gets done. A lot of talking is done but no results. The staff have been rude and unprofessional on several occasions and I have witnessed teachers speaking to the students very rudely. PARENTS, if your children attend this school watch them closely and become active in the school. I have never experienced anything like this at a school and I hope I never will again.

Enjoyed my visit! I think the assistant teacher had room for improvement, though. The office staff were friendly and made me feel welcomed.

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.
