Posted September 23, 2013

The move to Goldsboro was a hard transition especially with the lack of information on school districting. I research backwards in terms the school district to where we will choose to live. In the end we chose RWE with an on sight walk-through. Modern, convenient, well-maintained, and a true community dictate a well founded selection. I am not keen on NC schools but was remarkably impressed by mission, vision, and the well-being of the student that is expressed verbally, in parent meetings, and brought home for parental review. It was a rocky start before school session (kindergarten) as I believed the district is a "pull system" of information as opposed to a "push-system". We were provided class requirements list in the Open House only 4-days prior to school opening. But since the new session, the school is very up to date with computer access to student activities, class happenings, teacher access, and homework. At our daughters current level of instruction (K) the only downside we experience is a real lockdown on conversation between students, even in the cafeteria; no talking. They re 5 years old. Otherwise I see no reason but to consider this school in your selection.

We moved to this area just so our daughter could go to this school. What a great experience it was. All of the staff- secretaries- principal and her teachers she had thru the last two years were so fabulous. You could be as involved as you wanted, and you never felt like you were out of place or in the way. Rosewood is extraordinary place to be if your lucky enough to experience it. We loved Rosewood Elementary and we will dearly miss it- The Long Family

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.
