i have two kids at this school. i love the way the teachers relate to you, the parent. my son is in second grade and my daughter is in kindergarten. i love both teachers. they listen to your concerns and work with you. we went out of the country to visit and both teachers made provisions so my children will not miss out in class. keep up the good work

Alderman Elementary is actually a very nice school. There are two teachers in my sons classroom and only fourteen students. They often have guests to teach the children special things. The curriculum is presented in a way that is interesting and fun for the children. His teachers are wonderful communicaters with parents as well as the students. I find them to be most helpful and well educated. I honestly don't have even one complaint about this school. This year so far has been a really great experience for my son.

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.
