Snow Creek Elementary is a great school. My son is now in 1st grade and we are extremely pleased with the school. I am involved with PTO and we do raise a lot of money and it all goes right back into the school. My son has had 2 amazing teachers so far and the "feel" of the school is so helpful and wonderful. We are excited to have our child at this school for several more years. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a nice, neat school where the teachers (and all staff honestly) are fantastic. Their after school program is fantastic as well

This school is awesome! The teachers care about the children and take time to even help them after school. there are also many services with in the school that help kids. There are three state-of-the-art computer labs at the school and they offer art, fitness, and music. The principle and assistant principal are present throughout the school.

Snow Creek is an excellent school for learning. My child just started 2nd grade there. He started there in kindergarten and he learned so much in just the first few weeks of school and he has been excelling ever since. This is all due to the wonderful teaching staff. They are very good at what they do. The Principal and Assistant Principal are the best! My son lives them. They are very involved with everything that goes on at the school. Every staff memeber at Snow Creek always puts the students education and well being first. As for always wanting money, with the State budget the way it is, schools have to turn to other means for money to finance what the schools need. Usually the PTO is in charge of fundraising. Last year new playground equipment was purchased for both the K-2 and 3-6 playgrounds. This was purchased with money that the PTO had raised over a span of three years. Any money that is raised goes to the students in one way or another. This school is not all about money.

Not for my child,the teacher was the main reason why my child had some problems. Principle didn't care all he wanted to do was save face. The school looks great on the inside and out,but dnt be fooled. This school is all abt MONEY! You can get calls and emails on all the diff things tha will be going on so that they can raise money. Let your child need hlp with something noone is there. Money shldnt be this schools main goal. Im helping this school but its doing anything to help my child out or even let me know that their is a problem with my childs learning. Thus is not how a school should work. education first money last. Every wk the school ask fir some type of money... You would think they do not receive public funds,such ashame. After all the money I paid to help this school. Im happy to say my child will be attending a private school nxt,where teachers really care. If your really not into being a good teacher find a new job...why should our kids suffer bc that LAZY teacher.

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.
