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.
this school is bad i'm a seventh grade student the bus drivers are disrespectful its just horrible and teachers are mean.. yes students are to but its nastyy
what ever you do DO NOT attend this school i went here 6th - 8th this school is terrible its dirty theres gum on the wall and under desk school is outdated terrible lunches unprofessional the kids there are too ignorant show no respect and the staff is just as bad.
its awful teacher could barley control the class and we didnt learn as much as we could have luckly ill be in mostly ap classes and those are better behavied i was a 6 grader and i hope it wont be as bad as last year good luck to all the six graders i did have a few good thing i got to help with the special needs kids for semester i worked with really sweet boy and i looked forward to everyday
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.
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.
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.
Excellent staff and administrators. I fun place for students. Any experience is what you make it! Be supportive and helpful instead of complaining!
Great place for learning! Challenging for all students! Bus drivers are excellent!
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.
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.
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.
