Our school is a great school. They work hard to help all children. They weed out all the bad and work for the good of all students. They deserve your award because they will use it to a full advantage of good for the children. We have the best in class of all the staff. We are a small community school and we need the money. I applaud the staff. Hope we win!!!

I love it because my daughter loves it and is doing good. This is her first public school she is a military child. I love her teacher she is good and works with her well. She just still nervous to go and eat breakfast by herself. I'm still working with her on that. She is a child that just loves school.

My daughter is in Mrs. Blakes fifth grade class. She has been going to Penderlea since Kindergarten. I love her teacher. she stays on top of my daughter and keeps me informed on her behavior,grades, and progress whether its good or bad. I feel like she really cares and she is there to help make a difference in the children's lives.

We LOVE Penderlea. I'm so thrilled that our two boys are able to go here. Anytime one of my sons has had a academic problem it was quickly addressed and help was provided. The teachers and the principals bend over backwards to help the students and to keep the parents involved.

I just want to say that this school in Penderlea is so awesome and that the teachers and the staff are the greatest. My son started there since pre kindergarden and he loves this school. I feel that they the teachers have done so awesome with him, he loves school and it shows. I feel that all the teachers have done such a great job of teaching, and I feel great that my son is a part of this school. The gym teachers really keep my son on the go, and that is all he talks about. He truly likes Mr Pittman and it shows. I thank each teacher in Penderlea Elementary for the great job they are doing for our children. The Principal and the staff at Penderlea Elementary are truly amazing. I thank each and everyone working there for the great things they are doing for the children.

I cannot tell you how excited I am for Penderlea school this year. Penderlea has always been a terrific school and carries a great reputation. After meeting with our new principle on several occassions it is plain to see his vision for our much loved school. He is simply intrested in playing up what we already have going for us. So parents if your not involved in some way, please take the time to talk with your child or childs teacher to see what you can do. Get involved- it is going to be a awesome year! Remember, you are your childs first teacher.

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.
