There reading scores are below average They are really clean The principal is too out there and think she is better than other people


Posted May 7, 2013

My daughter loves this school. She was a slow reader now my 3rd grader is a book worm. As much as I would like to, I cannot give her all the credit. The teachers were able to help her catch up. They are all awesome. My daughter still has dyslexia. However, she now enjoys reading and can read above grade level. We could not have achieved this at her last school, Sardis Elementary.

Despite what many peolpe in Union county think, Walter Bickett is an excellent school. The teachers and staff at this school work to the individual needs of the students. WB has some of the greatest teachers in UCPS, including three Teacher of the Year awards for the county three years in a row. Students are treated with resepct and expected to perform at their best. Teachers use activites and methods that are age appropriate and meaningful. No basal readers here. If you want your child to be loved and learn all that he/she can, WB is the place to be. My son attended for 3 years and is an awesome student.

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.
