My son attends preschool at this school and his teacher is amazing. My son has a speech delay and is definitely getting the help he needs. I am able to speak with his teacher and specialists to track his progress and to get tips on how to help at home. His speech has improved significantly and we're only halfway through the school year!

The staff and administration at Summersill go above and beyond to meet the students' needs. The PTO works hard at encouraging a large amount of parent participation.

My daughter started Summersill in the 3rd grade and is now a 5th grader. It is a great school, with great teachers and administrations. *Note my Exceptional Child did not do well here and transfered to Northwoods Elem.

Some of the best teachers are at this school but also there are a few really bad apples. The prinicipal of this year and last is nothing like the one before this one. I really miss the old prinicpal and I never thought I would say that!

Two of the best assets of this school are the morning program and afternoon Boys and Girls Club for students. It helps working parents a great deal!

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.
