My child attends this school and the communication that the teachers have w/the students and parents is great. I like the fact that we get calls from the school to inform the parents of what is going on in the school. The special education teachers "Rock", they encourage they encourage regular student to volunteer to help the special need children. The special need children enjoy there time with the regular student ( who they themselves are special for volunteering). As a parent I recommend this school.

Don't be fooled by the 4 star rating!! There is very little institutional control at this school. A teacher informed us that our daughter was only able to receive 10 % of what she wanted to teach because of the disruptions by the majority of the students. My daughter was also sent to the media center frequently during math with two or three other student to work on handouts while the teacher dealt with behavior issues in the class again those who want an education lose. The icing on the cake. My wife witnessed a teacher trying to defuse a student threatening to beat up another girl. The teacher in trying to talk the girl out of it pleaded with her not to do anything for the next 9 days as it was his job to get her to the H.S. when she refused to back down from her threats his reply was well just don't do it on school property or during school hours. Oh this school has a zero tolerance for bulling. The one positive point at this school is the band program but don't expose your child to this environment just for band. I don't know what has happened to this school most of the reviews are prior to 2009.

Posted September 4, 2008

I agree with the review posted on June 11, 2008. The principal of this school is not effective. My son is a special needs child and his teachers were not given the tools they needed to deal with him in their classroom. It all came down to problems with the administration.

Posted June 11, 2008

This school has changed so much with the principal and I am sad to say for the not so good end. Don't get me wrong it is a wonderful school but if you have a problem that needs to be solved then you really can't count on the principal. The teachers and staff are great but if you have a problem don't wast your time trying to get them to fix it. I really liked Eppes better for my child, but end the end it's all about the child and their high school.

The principal, Delilah Jackson, is such a positive lady. She wants what is best for all students, at the expense of none.

Hi I am the parent of two children. I've just read the comments and I am appalled by what I read. My family and I moved here about 2 and 1/2 years ago. Coming from a school system that I consider less than accurate for my children. I am very pleased with the progress of my children. I have one child that has slight learning disabilities and one that excels in all she does. One is now moving on to the next grade and one to high school. I want to thank the teachers that were and are involved in my children's educational growth. Granted we have a rocky start but all in all I am very pleased. Keep up the good work! God bless you all!

We moved to Greenville two years ago and was told this was an excellent school. With the exception of band, it has been an awful experience. I have two children (6th & 8th). They have no 8th grade Algrebra 1 program. One class is on their fifth teacher and the other class has the most lousy teacher we have ever had the misforture to meet. The Pitt County school board and Principal are aware of the parents concerns regarding his conduct but have done nothing about it. My daughter has been slammed against lockers by children probably 4-5 years older than her (still in middle school)because she happened to get in their way. My son has witnessed countless bloody fights on the playground. We're moving away from Greenville because of the public schools.

Posted October 7, 2004

As my child is brand new to this school and to NC I expected more from this school. Most of his 8th grade teachers seem disinterested in helping him become accustomed to the school. There is also a great lack of communication between the school and parents. Trying to find out any information regarding after school activities or any other information is next to impossible. I chose to move to this area based on what I found here on this website, but I am truly disappointed with the school.

This is a wonderful school with excellent teachers and and awesome band director. I have a daughter in the 7th grade now and my oldest attended Aycock all three years from 6th-8th grade. Wish I could work at Aycock. The staff is the greatest.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 26, 2003

E.B. Aycock is committed to student excellence, good character, and the social development of the middle school student. No, it is not perfect, but the staff strives to make the middle school experience a positive one.

This is an awful school my daughter had terrible experiences

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.
