My children love this school. They look forward to getting up every morning and riding the bus to school. The faculty know the childrens names and greet them with a smile. I am very pleased with the academics taught here and there are many afterschool programs offered.

Both my children go to this school and I do not have any complaints. The majority of the teachers/staff are very friendly and helpful and I believe have my children's best interests at heart.

I would recommend Maiden Elementary to anyone. As parents of two school aged children, we believe that Maiden has excellent teachers. The teachers are always willing to help in any way they can. Our experience with this school has been wonderful, everyone is extremely nice.

Posted August 7, 2007

I would not ever recommend to any parent to put their child in Maiden Elementary. I have many issues with them starting in the classrooms all the way to the principal. There is too much favoritism, head turning and no morals. The majority of the teachers that my child has had, are far below par when in all areas. Teaching... they want you/parent to do it all.

My daughter goes to Maiden Elementary and she loves it. I have only had one negative experience and it was handled quickly. Being a single Dad does however hinder the communication a little with the teachers. I guess because it is not common. I don't mind the donations or fund raisers, everytime I go to church they pass around an offering plate and no one complains. The only thing I would change about this school is the fact I don't feel my daughter gets challenged enough academically. I went to a lot of schools growing up and overall I am very pleased with Maiden Elementary.

I would definitely send my child to this school. This is a small town school that has alot to offer. The staff is top-notch and helps anyway they can. My daughter attends this school and I have never had any problems communicating to herteachers or with the principal. Anytime I may have a question or concern it has always been addressed and resolved without any problems. This school offers alot of educational advantages for the students. The teachers always have their doors open for you to come in and talk to them about your childs academic progress. I was always welcomed to anything that was going on at the school. This school does ask for money but you see what you donating your money for or to (and its up to you whether or not you give). Parent involvement is something that this school needs.

Posted April 28, 2005

I would definately not recommend anyone put their child/children in this school. There is no parent/teacher communication at all! The school is constantly wanting money for something. Way too many fundraisers. Charges kids extra to have a dessert with lunch. Teachers do not work with kids at getting work done. Just lets them get a Zero on assignment instead of asking them why it wasn't done and helping them if needed. Parents are never invited to activities such as, holiday parties, or field day events, etc.

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.
