I am very excited for this new school year! I was happy to hear that we will have a new principal this coming school year. My children have attended this school for 5 years now and the only thing I thought that needed improvement was the administration. The teachers are amazing and care about the children. The support staff are also awesome! I think that the former principal created a tense working environment. I thought that the teachers were worried about their job security and the students didn't trust her. As a parent, I didn't have confidence in her ability to put the needs of the school ahead of her own agenda. I also think that the principal's attitude and behavior prevented parents from wanting to be involved with the school. I was very disappointed with how many situations were handled while she ran the school. I am so excited to see how things go with new leadership. I think this school will finally have the opportunity to run at its full potential.

We would have to dissagree with the comment below. Our principal is amazing and her leadership skills are super. Her open door policy lets anyone speak their mind and answers are given if you seek them out! The teachers, staff, bus drivers, lunch ladies in this small town is a place that we are proud to call home. Remember when you see a score of a "5" this is avg....and EOG's are a VERY stressful time for students and the staff. Its a tiny part of what they really learned.....so we would advise to look at the 'big' picture. All of our schools really are superb and we will stay here as long as possable!

I gave this rating of average because while the teachers are all excellent, the principal leadership needs improvement and/or change. Let's just say, dictatorship comes to mind where all is feared to speak their minds for fear of losing their jobs. It's pretty sad, because it ultimately comes back and effects the children in their classrooms. As a military family ourselves, we have chosen to not attend this school in the next school year so that another school with better leadership can benefit better with our Impact Aid relief fund from the federal government.

My son has been a student at Armstrong Elementary for two years and is thriving. The internet is updated regularly by the staff and allows me to follow the class and school activities, reminding both him and his father of important dates. We are all exceedingly pleased with our son's progress.

My daughter has been enrolled at Armstrong for 2 years now and she really enjoys the teacher and staff at the school. She really enjoyed being in pre K last year and kindergarten this year. I think she is in one of the best schools in Cumberland County. I truly am happy with the staff and teachers and look forward to the next 5 years at Armstrong. Keep doing a good job!

A very good school, however they are being penalized in their standing by the fact that they are being forced to take slow learners from other areas. This causes their performance to be somewhat tainted. The principal and staff are efficient, courteous, and professional. As I have stated in my rating of teachers they are of the highest quality. The school is much better than reported by the North Carolina State evaluation. On the other hand, Eastover Central Elementary School is rated so high, the honesty of the reporting is questionable. Some of the Cumberland County School Board members have really been critical of Armstrong's performance, especially during the time that the Year Round program was being decided for Armstrong for school year 2003-2004.
