I love Benvenue! The principal is awesome, the teachers have been very friendly, helpful. We have had no problems there and there is zero tolerance for disrupting the educational process. Very safe and loving environment.

My son is in 1st Grade this year and also attended in K. He loves the school and so do I. The teachers are really good and so concern for the children. The have functions for the children that they really enjoy. The best thing about the school is that my 6 year old son loves to go there. I recently bought a house and the number one criteria was that we had to be in the Benvenue School District. Keep up the good work.

My child has been at Benvenue Elementary since Kindergarden. He is in 5th grade this year. He loves the school and the teachers and other staff members. It is a clean school and I feel like he is safe when I drop him off in the mornings. Last year one of his teachers (Mrs. Harris, 4th grade) even noticed a problem that he was having with his health as being a serious problem and called me. He ended up in surgery the same day. She very likely made a huge difference in his life and I really can't thank her enough. All of the teachers that he has had over the years have been great and caring. They always call if he is having a problem and discuss it with me. They really seem to care about the students. Mrs. Bolt is a great leader. She has a way with kids.

This is the best school. My children are rising 5th and 1st graders and should attend school elsewhere. I work at this school and would not send my children anywhere else. The leadership is outstanding, the teachers and support personnel are excellent. There is no better place to be in the Nash-Rocky Mount School System.

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.
