South Mebane shines for their students down to the last one! My daughter was new to NC so new to SME and the staff starting at the front door to her teachers and other teachers in her same grade were more then welcoming. I've never been to a school that the principal literally knows every students name! And not for bad things but ALL things. Rebecca Royal is truly remarkable and her love for the children is untouchable.
My kids have attended, and while it seems like a friendly open school, we just have not been happy with how things are run. I'm not sure that the teachers truly know what goes on with my kids sometimes...I'll be looking into charter schools for my youngest.
My kids went to SME and I was not too happy with the experience so we left. I really felt as if they had no idea who my kids were the entire time they were there. The environment is very depressing. It seems as if they cater to the less than adverage student...one day I was there and the principal yelled over the loud speaker about how some student received a 100% on a spelling test..my daughter had straight A's every test since Kindergarten and no one made any anouncement about this! What about the kids who always do what they are supposed to...no not mentioned. I really don't even think they knew her name...sad.
