My daughter attends this school. It is great if you don't mind teachers having favorites, If your a student and your parent works at the school they will win all awards, be featured on the school website which is rarely updated and will be made to feel special leaving out all the other children. This school is going on their 3rd principal which doesn't say much to me. There is a lot of teacher shuffling each year also. My daughter loves music and is never picked to sing or play in special programs those are limited to the PTO presidents child and a first grade teachers child. Just very disappointing. We just try to make the best of it. The favoritism gets old real quick.

I have found that some teachers do not care about the students or how they do. It's disheartening to see. It's even harder to talk to the principal about it. She is too busy to discuss anything. I guess some people are too busy to do their jobs an educate our children.

I believe that Westfield Elementary is the best elementary school in the Surry County School system. The Principal and Asst. Principal are wonderful with the children and the parents. Westfield keeps its parents notified and up to date on all academics and extracurricular activities. Thanks Westfield for everything that you do and the wonderful way you teach and love my children.

I feel that before discipline is given to a student that there should be more investigation into the situation. I think that there needs to different leadership in the school. It use to be a very good school & now I think that there needs to be a change. I think that some of the teachers that are there should probably not be there. The principal also needs closer supervision.

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.
