Ogden is a wonderful school! We moved from another state and the school has exceeded every expectation we had. This is our 4th year and the amount of parental volunteers is amazing. There is an incredible group of dedicated teachers and staff. My son is now in middle school and got a great foundation for success from being challenged in his 5th grade classes. I drop off and pick up my kids and find it to be acceptable. The lines are long, but not disorganized.

My child is new to this school and i am not at all impressed. The office staff is great and very nice but the staff members who do drop off and pick up are very rude and disorganized. I come another school in the county and that school much more friendly and on top of things. Everyone worked together to help students and parents achieve. At Ogden everyone is trying to be better than everyone else. They need to get there act more together. Wishing we hadn't moved....

We bought our home so the kids could go to Ogden, and it was the best decision we could have made. We gave two boys who have been at Ogden from kindergarten to middle school- and I can not say enough about the school and it's facility. This is a tremendous school!

My child has excelled in her reading & I could not be happier enrolling her in Ogden Elementary.

I was nervous about sending my kids to a public school. But Ogden has been a terrific school for my two kids. The teachers have challenged my kids academically, and have genuinely cared about their success. The music teacher is incredibly supportive of her students, and I have even seen the Principal attending students sporting events. It is a safe, fun, and challenging environment. Extremely happy with Ogden.

This school came with high reccomendations, but once involved, I saw that the school is more about money and teaching our chilrden that being better than everyone else is ok. Kids that are different are looked down on, and there is almost no minority presence at the school. It is upper class white bread, and not a true picture of what the world is like, and does not teach the values that I want my children to have.

This is my daughter's second year at Ogden and we love it! We could not be happier with the teachers, staff and building.

I love Ogden because of the caring staff, the cleanliness of the school, the education the children are receiving, the parent involvement, and many other reasons. My children love this school & they are enjoying the new facilities and playground!

Just reviewing this site as a I research schools in a new area because we are relocating and I decided to check how accurate the site was by checking our recent school, Ogden. I can't believe we only have 2 reviews-This is a fantastic school.I left a private school to come here and it was the best decision I made.The teachers are outstanding, dedicated and friendly. The office staff was friendly and helpful at all times. Each time I walked down the halls I felt welcomed and happy to be part of such a wonderful community.My children were extremely happy here, felt safe and loved.The classroom enviroment was positive and challanging which made learning a good experience. We will miss this school.

This is a school with teachers that care as much about helping the top students achieve their potential as they do about helping the struggling students. There is a remarkable amount of parent involvement and the teachers seem to be aware that the high achievment at the school is, in part, due to a collaborative teacher-parent effort. I highly recommend this school!

One of the greatest things about this school is that the teachers are experts in creating a challenging classroom environment for all the students. For example, the students are divided into ability based reading groups within their grade. And while all the students in a class might hear the same information on a given topic, the worksheets used to expand the subject or reinforce it are individualized for each student. The SAGE teacher often assists with this process. The teachers are extremely diligent, professional, and dedicated. The parent involvement is also very strong.

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.
