Posted May 18, 2009

My grandson attended this school for 1 1/2 years. We transferred him to a private school half way through 2nd grade due to extremely poor communication with his second grade teacher. When we discussed the issue with the principal, she stated she was 'standing behind her teacher' which served as another block in communication and the inability to discuss and resolve issues related to providing a nurturing learning environment. We could afford to find a private school for my grandson where he now went from failing grades to 90' and 100's due to a caring learning environment and motivated teacher. I understand that it is a Title one school, but I would hope that the teachers and principal would be even more motivated to provide the students (especially in the early grades) with all the help and positive feedback that is possible within the county's educational system.

Our daughters were at an elementary school in Cary NC last year, and the impression we got was the teachers didnt care, what a breath of fresh air Wilson's Mills are, the teachers send daily updates, care whole heartedly for each student regardless of background, and take the time to help the children individually when needed, and have no issues staying late if a parent wants to see them. By far one of the best schools I have come across in a long time.

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.
