I am a parent of 2 children in union grove I find my children do not learn half of what they should. They only know how to print , have not learned any skills on how to write a letter , they have not learned the fifty states, the counties, the countries, the continants, the planets, much too much to list. But they know how to get a library book , and fill in math circles . The office is always full of chatty whinny staff, children are loud in hall ways , and we know way too much about teachers person lives , why they are there to teach not tell there first names and family life to our children . Or that they get paid every two weeks or that they are over worked. Wish the school was more proffesional,then our children would pass state tests.

This is my childs first year at Union Grove Elementary School. However, I feel sure that she will spend her entire elementary education time with this school. The teachers are excellant, and the school does not seem to be very cliquey. The principal and staff are excellant and very approachable. I am so impressed with this school that I have made plans to stay in this district permantly.

I am a mother of two and both my children have attended U.G. Elementary in fact I still have one child who still goes there the other is in middle school. This is the best school by far compared to any other. If you need a helping hand they are there for you, each child is treated with respect, small classroom sizes, wonderful caring teachers. It is a community effort that makes this the best school in Iredell County.

Everything about that school is great. I have no bad comments about that school. I love this wonderful school!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
