Lyle Creek Elementary is a wonderful school. The teachers that I have met are great to the kids and the Principal loves children and keeps us informed about activities that occur all through the year. This is my first year having a child at Lyle Creek and I have nothing but good to say about the school.

It is a newly built beautiful school. My nephew is a 4th grader there and loves it. They try to add all the Extra-curricular activities they can. He has always really liked his teachers and gotten along great with them. I am proud to say my nephew attends there. Also, being just an aunt not even a parent, in a wheelchair they always do everything possible to accomodate me whether in the lunch room, gym, or outside on the field. Wonderful school producing wonderful children! I am proud to say both he and his brother went there and I am happy to participate in their fund-raisers!

I am actually a student at LCES. Well, actually, I am in the sixth grade and I am writing this on the last day of school. This is a great school! The teachers are nice, and the school is only 6 years old! If you have recently moved to Conover, Lyle Creek is a great school! (Their principal is extremely nice to!)

Lyle Creek has strong teachers and the AG program is excellent. My fourth grader loves school now and is looking forward to 5th grade. Teachers go beyond to help students learn and have great experiences.

My kids love this school. All the teachers they have, but one have been a bit distant. Especially when a parent wants to volunteer. But otherwise, the school is wonderful.

My daughter is beginning her third year (6th grade year) at Lyle Creek. We love the school! It has been a great three years for our daughter as well as our family. She is part of the AG class program and has participated in science fairs as well as math fairs at state level.

My child is a second grader at Lyle Creek. I have been very pleased with the quality of education she has received thus far. As a past officer on the PTO, I feel that parent involvement is strong and that there is a general feeling of family in the school.

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.
