Our children have been going to Moyock Elementary School (MES) for over four years now. MES has an upward trend in EOG test scores over the past few years so it seems the current administration is doing something right. MES has been a great school for our children. My wife and I have never been unwelcomed in the school, we are very active in our children s education and we visit the school often. We do not coddle our kids, we parent them, motivate them to excel and follow the rules. Not every teacher has been friendly that we have seen and have interacted with, but they have always appeared to have the best intentions for our children s educational interests. Most of the teachers have been terrific and encourage our children to learn. They have used innovative teaching methods and have been very open to working with us as a team to get our children to overcome obstacles. This has been very rewarding. The administration has been great and has worked with us to accommodate just about every request that we have made. Our children love the school and have yet to have a bad day. I would highly recommend MES to any family thinking about moving here.

This school is awesome!!!! My son has been going there now for 5 years and has loved every year of it . I don't understand what some of these parents are talking about. My son says they do lots of group work with each other not just by themselves. I think some parents have too high of expectations. These teachers are awesome!! I always said my child would go to a private school because of the public school systems, but when we moved here 8 years ago and saw how high the schools were rated in the state, we decided he would go to them. It was the best decision we have ever made. Love the staff!!!!!!

I am disappointed in this school. The staff do not foster an environment where children are encouraged to be creative. There is a high student to teacher ratio. The children are punished for speaking. I found the school and classroom very unwelcoming!

I believe that Moyock Elementary is one of the finest schools in America. We moved to the area and I was concerned about the teachers and the school district since we moved from a very large school district to here. I am a teacher myself and know that the quality of the teachers is what is most important. My child was very attached to her teachers at her previous school and always looked forward to going to school. I was very pleased when she told me after the first week of school that she loved her new school and her new teachers. I know that not all teachers are going to be as loving and caring as her 2nd grade teacher was this past year, but I know that she loves to be in school, she loves the teachers, and she loves the kids that she has in her class.

Along with the 4/29/09 reviewer, I am also disappointed with this school. I agree with all of those comments and would like to add that, while I do not think it should be a crazy-free-for-all, I would like my child to enjoy school. However, my child is afraid of her teacher, the PE teachers, and many other authoritative figures in that school. If there were a private school closer, she'd be enrolled in it already. Children are not encouraged to be creative, thoughtful, expressive individuals. There is so much focus on being quiet, I wonder if the adults can even remember what it is like being a child.

I have two children that attend this school. MES teachers and staff are one of the finest in this area. I am grateful to have my children attend such a wonderful school. When I send them off in the morning I know they are getting the best education. We will be moving from the area for a job relocation and it is breaking my heart that my children will not be attending next year.

I have been extremely disappointed with the school. The way the school is run is a dictatorship. Group interaction is not encouraged. The students are basically told to keep quiet and given worksheets. The teachers show a lack of concern for the students and they frequently use threats in an attempt to motivate the students. I am not impressed with the school.

As the parent of a first year student, I was deeply concerned with the quality of the education system in a rural town. My concerns were quashed the moment I met the principal (Mrs. Bisbing) and the new first year Kindergarten teacher (Miss Corbo). I honestly don't believe my son could have received a better start to his education than he did at Moyock Elementary. I only mention the above names because I primarily interacted with them, however, every teacher and staff member of Moyock Elementary was extremely helpful and seemed genuinely interested in advancing each child's education.

I believe that the teachers at Moyock Elementary School are of the highest caliber and are involved in every aspect of the children's life. The teachers that my son has had up to this point (he is currently in second grade), have been exceptional and their teaching skills have benefited him in learning.

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.
