I have had nothing but great experiences from Irvin. I have been part of the Irvin family for a little over a year and they have been welcoming and very responsive. The teachers and staff obviously care about our kids.

My son left a very prominent charter school and was forced to go to this school. The first day I was there they set me down and told me this was a school of choice. I then had two other schools to choose from. They told me I had to choose this school and my school of choice. I told them that was not an option rather an ultimatum! I check the box of my choice school and refuse to select another school. As a parent I knew from the start Irvin was not a good fit socially and academically for my child. Then the sent me a email that I have been granted my choice to keep my child at Irvin.

My daughter is in the 3rd grade here and has been here from K. She has done very well and we are deeply pleased with all the work that the staff is willing and goes beyond to guide our child to the best of her abilities. I very pleased with W.M. Irvin! Keep up the great job!

My child and I really enjoy Irvin Elementary. I love the organization of Dr. Kelly Propst, Principal. She is the best. She is always doing things that make the students and parents feel involved. She does not ask her staff to do anything she is not doing. ie: She lets children out of cars on some mornings with the rest of staff. I am very pleased with the quality of techers my child has had. I cannot speak for all the teachers, but for the majority all are just super nice and well prepared to help your child academically. If I ever had any problems, Dr. Propst is there to listen. Most of the teachers are ready, willing and able to answer any questions I have.

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.
