This is a great school and my kids love it!!! The teachers and staff are so loving and caring. This is a large school but every staff member knows each child by their name and knows them on a personal level. Children are taught based on their individual needs.

I love that my child goes to Millers Creek. My child is a kinder in Ms. Smith's class and I feel that she is the best teacher that my daughter could have got, she looks forward to going to school everyday. I hope that she and Ms. Shephard the principal are both still there when my 3 yr old go to Millers Creek. I really like the principal I have older children that attended Millers Creek years ago and she is the BEST principal in the world.

I love that my son goes to Millers Creek. My son is a kindergartener and I thought he was gonna have a hard time. He ended up getting Mrs. Shephard as his teacher and let me tell you she is WOUNDERFUL! She cares so much about her kids and their families. She trys to get the parents involved as much as she can. She keeps us informed on how our kids are doing. She made it so easy on me. I thought I'd be worried to death about him, but I know he is in great hands with her so no worries. The Principal seems great she knows all the kids and cares a great deal about them. Overall its a great school and I'm glad my son goes there.

Miller's Creek is an excellent school. My child has grown so much since being there. The teacher's are wonderful and truly care about the children's education. Mrs. Shephard is the best principle that I have ever meet. She know's each child, there family and what is going on in the child's school work/life's. I am very honored to be able to say that my child goes to Miller's Creek Elm.

Millers Creek is involved in the I Care Program, which is great as it strengthens the bonds between Parents-Teachers-Students. The teachers try very hard to keep the parents involved in every aspect of the childs learning experience. I feel comfortable having my child attend this school.

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.
