This school has some really great aspects that are sadly shadowed by guidance from immature and inappropriate administration. Pam Sutton who has been the principal for almost 8 years now I believe, has pushed away good teacher after good teacher due to her lack of professionalism and the poor moral that she forms amongst the teachers. This is then reflected on to the kids because it affects the teachers in there over all demeanor. This would be a much better school under different leadership.

This school has obviously changed since the previous reviews. My son is a good student and not a discipline problem. It seems the principal has her favorites and that's it. This is my son's 4th elementary school due to moves with the military. This school is by far the worst. The principal is the worst and in 2 years of attending, I could not tell you what she looks like. It's really kind of scary. Maybe it's an entire district issue?

Benjamin T. Bullock is a fantastic school! My daughters have attended Bullock since 2006. Every teacher they have had at Bullock truly cares about students and academic excellence is a priority. One of my children has ADHD and the school has gone above and beyond to see her succeed and work with her special needs. I definitely would recommend this five star school to anyone planning to relocate in Lee County!

My children have attended BT Bullock since 2004. The school is absolutely fantastic and the teachers really care about the students. My youngest is very very active (like I was) and extremely bright. While every other teacher in his previous school was trying to get him dosed up on Ritalin (which I refused), his current teacher saw his behavior for what it really was; boredom. She challenged him and used appropriate discipline and he has done a complete 180-degree turn and is doing extremely well. My daughter has also thrived and is reading and doing math at a level roughly 2 years ahead of her current grade according to the nationwide tests. The after school programs offered at the school through the YMCA are also fantastic. I bought my house to be in the BT Bullock district and am thrilled I made that decision.

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.
