My children have been with this school since kindergarten and i have to say i have been so very pleased with the involvement of the staff and the parents! We started out with the best teacher we could have dreamed of for our shy 5yr old. Its very clean, so involved and very into whats best for the students. We landed here by school of choice and i am pleased with the choice we made, unfortunately transportation will not be provided this year but i refuse to pull them from such a great place due to that lack of transportation! We will just have to make due by grace of God and finish out our four more years! Thank your QCE for going above and beyond!

Our son started kindergarten in Mrs Oakley's class here & I couldn't be happier. She is an exceptional teacher who is caring & firm. Her balance to keep structure & still have fun is amazing. We just received orders to TX & I'll be sad to leave. The need for volunteers is high. I love volunteering here. I'm not a fan of how the PTA works, but that doesn't mean I can't be a voice & a helping hand in other ways.

This school does not follow through with their bullying policy, and has on several occasions allowed my child to come home with bruises, and upset over verbal abuse that they can't seem to control.

We are a military family, which requires that we move frequently. This past year we moved from NC to TX. You assume that most schools are at the same level academically. That was not the case. QCE is an exceptional school. They challenge each child at his or her level and encourage them to want to learn. Ms. Holder and Mrs. Tursi were two exceptional teachers. They are examples of what teaching is all about. Academically, they had programs that I have not seen at other schools. They were willing to go above and beyond to ensure their students learned and enjoyed learning. They kept the parents informed and involved. QCE has an excellent music and art program. They sought to teach the child at all levels, academically, developmentally and emotionally. Thanks QCE!

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.
