POOR school. The communication between school and home at this school is very poor. If parent meetings are scheduled (open house, meet the teacher) families are given 2-4 days notice. This is not enough time to make arrangements to be able to attend. Some people have jobs where they travel. This school is SO far behind other schools in this area and in the nation. Technology is not a priority. Communication is not a priority. They are focused on testing results. Teachers bend rules to up test scores instead of concentrating on "education". Bullying is a problem at this school as well. Too many other problems to list. If you are considering this school DO YOUR HOMEWORK!

This school has a new principal and we were hoping that she would make some changes. I think that the teacher mentality of the last several years is too much to change for her. Teacher turnover is high. Bullying is rampant at this school. It was commented by one teacher that they spend more time solving issues with bullying than they do teaching. They put most of their resources into children who are advanced. They segregate according to what levels you are in. It is the worst school I have ever worked in. There is NO communication from the school to the parents! Parents would love to volunteer but there is no coordination to make it happen.

We are so happy with ELMS. We were not thrilled to have daughter start middle school (any middle school). We gave the school a chance and they persevered. Our daughter is doing fine. We support the new vice principal in enforcing dress codes. So many parents were not even aware there were dress codes. Now they are. Keep up the great work. Now, bullying is my next topic. Bullying needs attention now! It starts out small..please be aware it accelerates overnight. It is happening, not just @ ELMS, but all over the country. Please learn more about it.

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.
