The learning environment is great, the staff is friendly and at the same time professional and knowledgeable about your child without having to consult note or files. I also appreciate that parents are encouraged to come out an eat with their children and to visit the school and volunteer. So many schools are uptight in that area.

I am a parent to a child in the 5th grade. His teachers care about his wellbeing and progress. AR however could be an easier place for parents to access to keep up with your childs reading progress. Other web sites for AR are more user friendly.

I am very happy with the school and it's involvement with the children. My son is in kindergarten this year and really enjoys all the activities and is learing so much more than I remember learning at that age.

My daughter is a 2nd grader at Gatesville Elementary. We moved to the area August, 2008 and I am impressed with the school and teachers. My daughter enjoys going to this school and it shows because she made honor roll on her first report card.

'We are very pleased with Gatesville. The school is parent/teacher friendly. The small enrollment here allows more teacher interaction with each student. The kids are challenged to do beyond their best.The school is always clean, inside as well as outside.

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.
