Alderman Elementary is a fantastic school and has been a great fit for our daughter, who is excelling in the AIG program. The student population is very diverse. Academics are a priority, but the school has also embraced a focus on character education that is having a wonderful impact on students and families. The Principal and school staff are very attentive and demonstrate genuine concern for the students. The PTA is extremely active, and many parents are involved in their children s classrooms and facilitate school-wide activities, which helps create a welcoming and supportive environment. Alderman is rising above the score-driven challenges facing public schools and continues to provide high academic expectations for all students, and the administrators and staff have done a great job of making the best of the MESS that our legislators have made of public education in North Carolina. Leadership at Alderman is shared between administrators, teachers and parents, and there is a definite sense of the village philosophy in all aspects of curriculum and programming. We are PROUD to be Soaring Eagles!

I am very pleased with Alderman Elementary. My son is in the first grade there and is excelling in all areas. He had a great kindergarten teacher and has a great first grade teacher as well. The principal really challenges the teachers to get the school scores up and to prepare them for middle school and beyond - even in the first grade. Everyone has been very friendly and involved. We love Alderman!

I have 2 children here & am very pleased with the overall education experience. Parent involvement is extremely good & teacher care is exceptional. Biggest concern is class size. School year for both of my children start out with about 21 or so, but as the year progresses, it always slips up closer to 30 which is way too many to deal with. Not enough teacher assistants, but parental involvement helps a lot. PTA is very very strong & supportive! Get involved in the PTA! They are your voice & staff truly appreciate what the PTA does for them. Overall, this is a very good place for the beginning years of education. The new Principal, Mary Paul Beall, seems very good since taking over on 1-1-05. EOGs have been very high over the past several years thanks to the teachers & hard working students. Happy Parent
