Elmhurst has been through many changes due to redistricting, however the teachers and administrators are excellent and my children continue to have great experiences there. Parents remain very involved and the principal is an advocate for all her children.

Used to be a great school. However due to redistricting this is now one of the worst schools in the county. It's a shame.

Elmhurst is a dynamic school. There are no bad apples in this bunch. All staff members are excellent and truly care about education and our children. We are blessed to have this school in Greenville.

Overall, school does a good job of taking care of their students. I have been particularly happy with the Talented and Gifted program. My concerns would be as follows: 1. The physical education, art and music programs need a lot of work. I rarely see my child bring artwork home. The music performances have been marginal at best. The school doesn't have a gymnasium (they meet in a trailer). 2. There are trailers on campus for several classes due to overcrowding. 3. Recess should be daily, especially Kindergarten! The principal is a very nice man, cares about the kids, and definitely works well with the staff. However, he is a 'people pleaser' and does whatever he can to not 'rock the boat'. There is a lot of parent involvement and the PTA does a wonderful job.

When we moved to NC we heard nothing but great things about Elmhurst. We find Elmhurst to be a great school overall. We did have problems with one teacher. But, I must say that you cannot get a bad teacher in second grade. They are all great and love the kids and it shows. We are very pleased that our children go to Elmhurst. Sometimes you do get a bad apple in the bunch. They could re-vamp their safety plan by using Raleigh schools as an example. PTA is great, lots of school activities, great environment. All that said, we wouldn't want our kids to go to elementary school anywhere else in Pitt County.

I think Elmhurst is a wonderful school, my son use to go there before he transferred to a school out the county, he had some excellent Kindergarten Teachers Ms.Warren and Ms.Clemons, if you got kids in Kindergarten I recommend those teachers they are excellent.

My daughter has been at Elmhurst for the past 5 years and she has benefited from this experience. The teaches are awesome. The school really does a good job of thinking outside the box. The PTA is very active and set goals that they always seem to achieve. The Principle is new this year, however he really seems to have done his homework about Elmhurst and has set a positive tone as our previous prinicple did. This definitly as school of Excellence in every sense of the word and We are fortunate that our daughter attends this school.

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.
