I have a rising fourth grader in this school,he has been here since kinder garden.He is in the Talent development program and I feel he is getting oppurtnities here that he would have not gotten any where else.I volunteer and participate in the watch dog program.I've watched my son accell in this school far beyond any expectations I ever had.Under sound leadership of M. Osborne and his T.D teachers.This school has been a true blessing to my son. Our P.T.A also has been a major asset to this school under the leadership of K. Stevens She has made things happen for the children and the teachers that have gone unsurpassed in the four years we have been there. However there is also room for improvement,the lack of parent involvement with there children in regards to discipline,self discipline only continues to undermine the great oppurtunities the children have at this school. Thank you

I have had a child at Tuckaseegee for the last seven years. All four have gone through the multi-age program and we could not be pleased. The teachers have become a part of our family. The leadership by principal Osbourne over the years has keep the school moving forward. The recent addition of the 'Watchdogs' program has further increased the involvement of fathers in their childrens' education. Spending a whole day at this school really shows you how much the staff -- from the main office to teachers and even to the cafeteria -- cares about our children. Mike Craft

I have four grandchildren enrolled in Tuckaseegee (the oldest is entering the fourth grade this year) the parent/teacher involvement is great questions are answered in the daily planner, telephone calls are returned and no appointment with the teacher has been turned down. Thank you

My daughter has been in the Multiage Class for two years now. I am extremely satisfy with the education she is receiving. The teachers are very involved in the kids learning. The office staff, Media staff, PE, Art, and Special Area teachers are all great too!

My daughter had a wonderful teacher last year and my second daughter will be attending Tuckaseegee this year. We have moved and will be farther away from the school. Because of the teaching and involvement that the staff have with the students I am willing to drive my kids to school every morning so that they can get the teaching and attention that they need to succeed in school.

My son goes here and I am very pleased, this is our 4th elementary school and this is the best one I have seen. It is one of the very few schools in Charlotte that is not over crowded. The staff seems to know everyone and they provide a loving enviroment for my child.

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.
