My upcoming 4th grader has attended this school since pre-k. I have been impressed with the overall education he has received. Most teachers are very dedicated and hold students to high expectations. Communication and curriculum have improved in recent years.



- a parent
Our daughter has attended since kindergarten and honestly that was the only decent year. Communication from teachers and principles are nonexistent and if you do get to talk to 2 or more, you'll get 2 different answers. Car pool is never on time. School functions are preceded by PTA meetings. Websites they use will not work with tablets. Johnston County School system has become a joke.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a parent
Our kids have had so many amazing teachers at Polenta! They genuinely care about the children and do everything they can to help them succeed.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

After six years of our children attending Polenta, they have had the most amazing teachers.


Amount of homework: Agree

The amount of homework seems to be very fair and not take a lot of time. Children need their playtime when they get home from school.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a parent
Polenta's main goal outside of teaching the curriculum is to develop this important life skills.

Polenta is a wonderful school with really great teachers. We have three children that have attended this school.

Principle will make uneducated statements instead of searching for truth before she responds to a parent concern.
