Posted September 3, 2009

We have entered out 3rd year w/ our oldest attending KIES. So far, she has attended the Pre-K which is outside of the school for admin, but attendance is allowed to be held within the school itself preparing our children for the separation and acclimation that school requires. In first grade, our child exhibited a broad range of knowledge that she learned in their classes. If anyone has a problem w/ this school, I believe it would be nit picking. As an honor student n college, I am thoroughly impressed w/ the results thus far.

My child attended Knotts Island Elementary and there definitely needs to be more parent involvement. This is an excellent school and my child got an excellent education. I only wish that they would go back and teach phonics for spelling. They really lack in the spelling department.

Great school! The teachers work hard and get very involved with the children and their families. One class of each grade, better than a private school!

This is a great school only 300 kids in the school, only one class per grade! One on one is great only around 8 to 15 kids in a class!

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.
