My son started West Pine last year. And every since he has been attending the school he has been an excellent student. His reading has excelled and so has his grades. The teachers he has this year are excellent. The teachers care for their students and want to see them succeed. Keep up the good work at West Pine Elementary. Hope to see many more great years and teachers in the future.

My son has been going to this school since Oct and every since we placed him in this school we have had nothing but problems from the staff and kids. since coming to this school his grades has droped and he has told me a few time that he brings home more work then what they do in class. he has also had a lot of problems with the kids and teachers in this school but when I talked with the principal about it all he did was laugh and tell me it was my kid and how nothing was wrong with his school or the teachers. But my son also takes ADHD medication and I was sending some to school just in case but this perfectly unperfect school OVERDOESED my son 3 different times. They are suppose to call before giving it but they never did. Then my son started telling me how mean some of the kids was being to him and when I called up to the school to see if I could sit in his class OUT OF THE WAY I was told no I would have to set a time up ahead so the teacher knew I was coming. ??? There is a lot more I have to say but I cant fit it all on here. But I will be moving him next school year if I have to move homes. I will not let him or his brother go through this again... signed a mad mom

I recently moved here and I must say I am throughly impressed with this school! Their level of excellence and love for the kids is amazing! I have 2 children in this school. The Kindergarten teachers are so kind and work really hard to teach the kids with such creativity. They also show them early on the fundamentals they will need for the state tests and help them to exceed early on. My 3rd grader is doing great. However, I must say the work load is triple what is was in 2nd gradeback home but it has taught my child responsibility on a whole new level. My child is doing fantastically (honor roll) and teacher handles the classroom well and knows her stuff academically! The principal and vice principal and staff and very kind and welcoming too. The only thing that is frustrating is the morning traffic. It hosts the year round as well as tradiontional so it gets hectic. We leave the house 30 min before school starts and still have to wait in line for a while. So we just plan accordingly.But I really have no other complaints. I appreciate this school and the entire staff. I highly recommend this school if you are lucky enough to be zoned for it!

This school is only in its second year. It's new, fresh, full of great teachers. Plenty of space in the classroom, state of the art technology, and built with "green" building practices. We love it!!

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.
