Pineville has a great team of teachers and administration! I HAVE had issues and when I spoke to teacher/ principal it was taken care of immediately. The teachers are very caring and they also want your child to learn while having fun. This year we got a new school and with the new school came new things like technology!!! My daughter amazes me with her knowledge of the tech world. Pineville is great, come visit us!!! :)

Be prepared for a fight everyday w/ the staff/administration if you have special needs children. Awful leadership.

Administration does not listen to parents. They are dismissive and unprofessional. The principle is awful to deal with and his staff isn't much better. I would never subject my child to attending this poor excuse for a school for another year.

As a parent who could not be happier with Pineville Elementary School, I felt compelled to share my experience with others. From the moment we stepped foot into this school, we were greeted warmly and could feel the caring & compassion the teachers and leaders have for both the students and parents. Rarely do you find a group of individuals who are so passionate about what they do and to making the educations and school a better place for all. While I believe strongly that there are always varying opinions, I can say that I have to disagree that the leaders and teachers do not listen to parents-I have found it to be quite the opposite. To say that this is a "poor school with students who come in struggling" is a large generalization & one that is not a true reflection of the communities & students that feed into PES. The diversity of students (both ethnically & socioeconomic) is what makes this school unique. It is also one of the things I like most about it. Before passing on PES based on online comments & EOG scores, I encourage all parents to do what we did-visit the school, meet the leaders, & then make an informed decision. I

Pineville is a poor school that tries really hard and has little to no budget. They do not get rid of bad teachers. Good teachers leave for better administrators. The administration does not listen to the teachers. The kids that come here are struggling to begin with. The school does not listen to parents. If your child is not failing, your child will not receive any help, until the child hits bottom. If your child has any special needs do not go to this school.

I picked my up 7 year old daughter from the after-school program at Pineville Elementary this afternoon, October 23rd, 2012 at approximately 5:15pm. I walked into the cafeteria where they were sitting and called my daughter to get her bookbag and coat, it was time to go. She waddled over to me slowly and I asked from across the cafeteria "why are you walking so funny?" she didnt say a word. No teachers said anything, they hardly ever do. As soon as she came within about 3ft of me I could smell the smell of old feces. I took her into the gym and she told me that she had been like that for 1/2 the day. She had feces down her legs and up her back. There is absolutely no way that her teachers or her after-school teachers/workers could not have noticed this. My daughter told me the other kids noticed, but still the teachers did nothing. This is the most disgusting sad situation/school that I have ever dealt with.

Pineville Elemenatry is an excellent school. I moved to Pineville from New Jersey. My children came to Pineville reading below grade level but now they are all reading at or above grade level. The teachers and staff of Pineville are among the most caring I have every meet. They make sure that every child feels special. I love this school and would recommend it to anyone.

I cannot express how grateful I am, that my daughter has had the opportunity to attend this school. Last year our family had to move temporarily to another school district (Huntersville), and had an experience that I would not want for any student or parent, and I realized just how special Pineville really is. The staff at Pineville are warm, kind, genuine, and competent. My child comes home excited everyday, about what she has learned and has done throughout the day. She always looks forward to being involved in the next fun event, and has made amazing friends. We are now moving out of state, and found a home in a school district that is the most like Pineville. I can only hope and pray that the staff and learning experience she has is comparable to what she has experienced with Pineville.

I have just come across this web site and wanted to say that I live within the Pineville assignment area, and because I did NOT do my homework I had my son attend another area school thinking it was going to be better. Boy, did I have a rude awaking. After placing him into Pineville, he excelled and exceed. My only regret was not having him there sooner. The school was committed to the education my son needed to succeed. I was truly happy with the education and wonderful teachers who cared, it was due to their endless and grateful efforts and services

The staff at Pineville Elementary does so much to keep the parents involved in the education of our children and they are always providing tools to keep your child learning while at home wether on vacation or just for the weekend. So many parents in the area are quick to run to the 'new' schools that are opening up. Pineville, being older or not is one of the best schools in the area. I feel extremely lucky that my child is in such a wonderful school where the staff gives her quality attention and encourages her to try something new every day. I hope to keep her at Pineville for the remainder of her Elementary education.

I think Pineville Elementary is the best kept secret in Charlotte-Meck system. It has a small community feeling, and the educators and staff are second to none. I feel my children have learned in very creative, challenging ways here. I love the extra family events they have recently started, to allow the parents to feel a part of this great school community.

All the teachers meet as a group and plan each weeks class schedule together so all childern are learning the same thing for each grade. Their is a high amount of great teachers that have been there for years so there is a balance or a rhythm to their work from year to year. The principal's leadership just ties it all together with his understanding and direction. We have a great school.

This is my daughter's third year at Pineville. I am shocked at how well she reads and understands mathmatics compared to my two sons reading level and knowlege of mathmatics when they were her age. I believe that their program and tactics are aggressively effective. My only conflict with Pineville is the amount of pressure they place upon parents financially. They are in constant need and fail to realize that most children that attend this school are not children from wealthy families. Most are two parent working families and are struggling just to make ends meet. I hope with the new staff that these issues will be reconized so that no child will feel ashamed if their parent cannot provide all that Pineville Elementary asks of the parents financially. Words cannot express the pressure this school places upon the parents and I am speaking on behalf of conversations with many of them.

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.
