my kid also started at kiser this year. She was an a student untill she started here. It seems they send all the work home to do with the parents. I'm really not sure what the kids are doing all day because they are not learning anything.

My child started at Kiser this year, and I haven't be impressed one bit. The school he was attending she made good grades and had many friends. Now my child's grades have dropped and is now failing math. I have asked for help from the teacher and she doesn't seem to care enough to help out. The people in this school tend to be more interested in the kids, who's parents are popular in the community and have money. My child tries hard in and out of school, but just isn''t making the grade. I feel that she will have to be held back this year, which we are all very upset about.

Kiser Elementary is a great school Grades are 3-5.The teacher ratio here seems to be smaller in comparsion to other elementary schools in our area. There is a good amount of parent involvement.Kiser has had a bad reputation in the past, but a new prinicipal has been there for the past two years and has really made a difference. As far as learning, Kiser is just as good if not better than the other schools in the area(in comparison to Mount Holly schools). Alot of parents tend to transfer their schools from Kiser to other schools and in my opinion Kiser has a much better atmosphere.We've had no problems this year. My child is very happy and so are we.

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.
