About my review- I would love to inform any parent and I would like to hear anything anyone wishes to say to me. I know that I was innocent yet forced to commit to being guilty by threat , but I was a child at the time and my parents didnt have the money to get a lawyer to take it to court and sue or anything, so I just got over it and went on with my life. But I will never, ever put my child in Sugarloaf Elementary because they are some cruel people working there doing whatever they may to kids just so they can keep the school ratings high.

A wonderful school with great teachers. All three of my children go there, and they love it. Most of the teachers are good Christrians.

My child is only in First grade, but has been in More at Four, Kindergarten, and the principal, Cary Cash, is very interested in each child and knows them by name. The teachers have been very cooperative and I have never heard my child say anything bad about his teacher. That means alot. I would rate this school a 10.

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.
