My three children attend G.W. Bulluck Elementary School. This school has provided excellent education opportunities and has provided the same learning experience for my oldest child that has special needs. This is a great school and they are dedicated to giving their students the chance to succeed in life.

Our granddaughter goes to Bulluck and we just love it. She is in Kindergarten and it's just amazing how much she has learned this year. She has a wonderful teacher whom she loves dearly. Hope she is always as blessed as she is this year to have loving, caring teachers who make learning fun and exciting to the children.

This school is amazing! It does not have much money or technology, but the staff and teachers are awesome. The principal has been there for 2 years and I don't know about the school before then. My son has been going there for 2 years. I love the teachers and the whole school.

First off, I have two children that have been attending this school for the past 3 years. Up until last year, I was happy with the school. The traffic was flowing in and out steadily with no problems. Now you have parents holding up traffic and getting out of there cars. This is a morning and afternoon issue that really needs resolving! Whenever an issue arises and I try to contact the principal, my calls are never answered. My children have been attacked by other children and no form of discipline was ever used. I do not recommend this school, I feel the system has failed my children. I dont feel safe sending them to that school. I cant concentrate at work knowing they are there. What are we teaching our children?

I really dont have much of anything to say good about this school. My older child has begged me to take him out. He has been there for the past 4 years and things have gradually gotten worst within the past 3 years. He comes home with headaches bc his teacher has to scream at the class on a daily basis. Ive had conferences with her regarding the issue, but she seems that is her only way to getting through. Traffic is always backed up for miles no matter how early or late I arrive. Now the principal has changed the uniform policy. Im disquisted!

I dont like the driving situation out there. I am a single mother of 4 children. I am currently working 2 jobs and having to get off work to pick my children up and then take them to stone park in the evenings. Then back to work! I am almost late everyday due to the driving situation at Bulluck! I have parents stopping and getting out to pick there children up, which holds up traffic. I leave work at 2:15 and arrive at the school at 2:30 and end up driving out of the school around 3:05. Also, I feel like the teachers and I arent ever on the same page. My children have come home and told me the teachers arent nice and that they refuse to help them with there work. My children are all suffering in school b/c the teacher refuses a little one on one time.

I was never pleased with this school. I have tried getting in touch with the school principal and she never returns my calls! I will start homeschooling soon... I have heard so many good things about this school and our children have never felt happy going here. :(

There are 30 children in my son's 4th grade class - 1 teacher, and no assistant. This ratio is not good - how can 1 teacher control and teach that many children? Bulluck School needs more teachers to get the number of students down in each classroom.

My child has been at this school since Pre-K and now she is in the second grade. I love this school the teachers and principal is very nice and kind. They are really concern with the children progress and education. I rate this school with all five stars. Excellent! Keep up the good work. Yolanda of Rocky Mount.

Bulluck Elementary School is one of the best schools ever. My son has been at this school since he was 5 and in kindeergarten and we have never ever had a problem. Even the speech instructor is top notch in my book . The principal is great and all the staff are wonderful. They give us the opprtunity to chose a teacher each year and I have never chosen one and my son has excelled better thatn he would have at any other school. I thank God for Bulluck.

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.
