Both of my children attended Cash from kindergarten through fifth grade. I was elected PTA president for a two year term, and remained on the Executive Board afterwards. At that time, parent involvement was extremely high, and our fundraising for quality playground equipment, and an up-to-date, modern computer lab was extremely successful, along with the Reflections program. Most teachers were Nationally Certified, and many AG certified beyond those teaching AG level classes. The arts are EXTREMELY important at Cash, and the different disciplines of art are taught by very gifted people that instill a love for music, visual art, and writing. We always were at the top in state rankings for test scores, etc., and began the Multiple Intelligences style of teaching and learning...way ahead of our time for a small town. I am proud to say that my kids were educated at the BEST elementary school in Forsyth County. I even drove my son from Winston-Salem every day; 20 minutes each way (after moving from Kernersville), for two years to continue his education there, when he could have gone to the neighborhood school, ranked as one of the top in the state as well, but we LOVED Cash.

From my personal experience, I wouldn't recommend this Cash Elementary to anyone. About four years ago, my child attended part of fourth grade here and she was bullied throughout the whole year. It started with a small group of kids, who apparently were some of the "popular" kids who were making fun of her. She pretended like she was fine with it, but a couple weeks after the first day of school she came home crying and told me all about the kids making fun of her. Apparently she started making more friends but they ended just going along with the kids who we're teasing her. So I called the teacher, she said she would take care of it, but that didn't happen. So I contacted the principal and she seemed nice, and she referred me to parent teacher organization or the PTA. It turns out the kids of the parents who were in the PTA were making fun of her. Long story short, we changed schools and about a month later we moved back to New York. That ended up to be the best thing that happened to our family. Our Cash experience was not a great one. Our family was going through a rough patch and I honestly don't think southern hospitality applies here.

Cash is a wonderful school. Mrs. Jones, our Principal sets the example. Teachers, PTA, staff and volunteers work together to ensure our children receive an excellent education. I visited other schools in Kernersville and feel Cash is the best!

Its a great school The Principal (Ms Jones) Does a wounderful job along with all the teachers! The only thing I was unsure of is how in third grade they start to change classes like they were in High School! Other than that its wounderful!

This is my daughter 2ng year with Cash. She has a hearing disabilty and the teachers have been more than wonderful to help her get and stay on track. Every teacher and staff member cares about the children and all want them to succeed in a safe enviorment. You could not ask for a better school.

This school is probably fine for most students. Unfortunately we moved here from Indiana and these schools seemed to be lacking in comparison. The specials courses are not outstanding, P.E. and spanish for sure are lacking. Also my son needs accelerated math and not accelerated reading but was unable to get one without the other. He has the advanced class and is doing exceptional in math but he is falling behind in reading.

This is a great school of multiple intelligence hands on learning. Everyone from the Best Principle to PTSA to the custodian are part of the schools success. The children excell from the guality and dedication of the teachers. A+

Our daughter is in third grade at Cash and we have another daughter starting kindergarten there in August. We have had a strong academic experience, plus the teachers are very caring and involved. They use a variety of communication tools to let you know how your child is progressing. Most of the teachers we have been top-notch. Since the county offers an Academically Gifted program within the schools, if your child is accelerated in a particular area they can get the extra challenges that they might require. There is a nice balance between academics and social experiences. The parents are wonderful and the PTA hosts lots of events that the kids and their families can enjoy. The county offers a 'school of choice' program so you have the option to pick your neighborhood school or another in the area. I am very glad we chose Cash.
