my son attended kindergarten at JW Coons and I can say the school is awesome! Each member of the staff is attentive to the childrens needs and his teacher Ms. Ashley Voter and Ms. Tillman are examples of what teachers should be about. Excellent principal and will only stay in this district while he is in k-5.

The teachers are who make this school great. Each teacher my child has had has taken a special interest in their whole person and is nurturing and caring not just about the grades and classwork but about the overall person. They have been very open and eager to help me find ways to help my child reach his potential. I would prefer the school overall was more child oriented and less geared toward making an 'adult impression' I would like to see more color and a more child oriented environment and ambiance. I would also like to see more social activities for the children and more opportunity for parent involvement in both fun and educational extra curricular activities. The teachers however are the reason I have chosen not to take advantage of the opportunity the county provides via schools of Choice to move my child.

I am impressed with the individual and group attention given to my grandaughter and her classmates. I am also very impressed with the easy accessibility and casual, informal demeanor of the teachers to parents that puts everyone at ease. I feel that the teachers and the parents are partners working together for the welfare of the student.

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.
