Rolesville Elementary school- my daughter has almost finished her first year at this school (first grade). compared to her last school RES is an average school. last year my daughter learned an incredible amount of things, and this year at RES she seems to be, basically, reviewing everything she did for the last part of kindergarten. reading level is not expected to change(on their part...however we are working with her) and in math the sum and product will never be greater than 20...which was her kindergarten level work. her teacher is not any more friendly than a "hey" when you walk in the class. i am not very impressed at all!

Rolesville Elementary School is in a class by itself as far as I am concerned. From the Principal to the janitorial staff, everyone has always be a pleasure to be around. Their love and guided direction for every child 's welfare is Superior. I Love this school.

My daughter just finished her first year of Kindergarten here and Ms. Webster and Mrs. Davis truly set a great foundation for the love of learning and making education fun. I could hardly believe how much they covered this year. My daughter went in with a basic knowledge of her ABC's and is now reading! And knows what a noun is! We were very impressed with the administration as well; they truly care.

Every member of the staff, from the Principal down to the Administrative Assistant at the front desk are top notch. Every teacher we have dealt with has had respect for each and every kid, parent and unique situation. Respect is practiced and preached at RES, and it shows in my child's positive attitude every day. In my opinion, this school is easily dismissed as a lesser school than others, due to it being an older building that doesn't have all the luster & sheen as some of the newer ones. But, I recommend taking a tour, meet the staff and then make up your own mind. RES offers a diverse and secure environment for your child.

I am very pleased with what my daughter has learned in the three months that she has attended Rolesville Elementary. She has a teacher and a teachers assistant and they are both wonderful. I am amazed at how fast she has learned her alphabet (upper & lower), numbers (1 - 100), reading, and writing. She knows her days-of-the-week, and the months-of-the-year! We tried teaching her those for months and she couldn't get it, but her teachers put them in a song and she knew them instintly. We are very happy to have moved to such a great area, with a great school, and great teachers!

Two of my children went to Rolesville Elementary last year, and one will start this year. The teachers are great and my kids like it. I just hope it won't get too crowded...

My child just started at the school this past year I couldn't be more pleased. We had the best teacher ever(Mrs. Wood)she taught my son so much and was very loveable. I also feel very comfortable sending my child to school knowing that he is safe thanks to the leadership of Mrs. Lee. Over all I am very pleased with this school, and I am proud to say that my child attends Rolesville Elementary School!

Two of my three children attend Rolesville Elementary, and I have been exceptionally pleased with the warm, caring environment the principle and teachers provide.

Posted September 26, 2006

My child went to Rolesville Elementary for two years. The school is not bad, but not really good either. There were hardly ever more than 10 people at the PTA meetings, unless tied in with a special event (like the holiday program). There was some parental volunteering, but not like I've seen at other schools. The principal seems too busy and doesn't act concerned about issues. It's an OK school for the basics, but they don't seem to excel at anything. We've moved on to a magnet school and are much happier.

This is a fantastic school! Principal Vivian Lee is exceptional. There is a good mix of children and the teachers are all very good. I was worried about it being a good school, but after my daughter completed her first year in kindergarten, I was more than pleased with the school. I only wish it was year-round instead of traditional, but because it is so good, I'm not moving my daughter.

My son is enrolled in the preschool program for children with special needs at Rolesville Elementary. He really loves his time there and is extremly happy. The teacher keeps us updated with pictures and comments about his progress.

We are completely satisfied. Our child is excelling in all subjects at a very rapid rate. The teachers at this school care about each child's progress and continually keep the parents updated of these achievements.

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.
