Our stay at Sedalia was short but positive. Excellent communication with Principal Gann, office and K teacher. Genuine concern for student.

i have 3 boys, 8 year old in 3rd grade and he has a very understanding, intelligent, very involved with every student as well as the parent~~ i also have a 7 year old that attends sedalia, he lucked up by getting his brothers teacher that he had just last year, so now i dont have to spend time wondering if my 7 year old has a great teacher or not because theres no doubt in my mind that mrs garnett's busy bees adore her and she is a very bright, sweet, caring , intelligent very involved in students and also as well as each parent... my 2 older boys have been attending sedalia since they were each enrolled and since pre-k.. also i want to say that mrs welch is also a excelent teacher.. she was my 8 year olds pre-k teacher then it was awesome to know that when pre-k ended for the year, my son started kindergarden next of course and mrs welch had already told me that she was going to be teaching kidergarden well she is such a good woman she knew my son felt very cofortable her as his teacher so when she got to pick some students she had from her pre-k class the past year she made sure she picked my son, she is truly a true, and good hearted woman and my son adores her still!!

My kids love the diversity of the school. The people in the community are really nice. Not too keen on the administration, but you can't have everything!

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.
