This s bybfarvhe best school we have attended. They do all they can for the families within the walls. I know they care about my child and me. Other schools might look better from the outside, but it is what is inside that matters. We love CHES!!!

This is really a great school. They care about the students. They challenge them and provide support to those who need it. I have had two children in the EC program and they did great. The communication is great. Nice small family feel school!

My kids have been at this school for three years. I have had nothing but positive experiences. The teachers and staff go the extra mile to meet the needs of all students. The principal is always willing to listen. If you notice the last few comments were all posted on the same day probably by the same person. No school is perfect but this is a close to perfect as you can get!!!!

My kids have been at this school for a year and have had to put up with being bullied the whole time, they have come home with marks on them, hit in the head and pushed around, The bus driver has dropped them off houses away from their bus stop and made them walk in the rain and have told my children to shut up and that they were slow! All this has been reported and nothing has been done but it has gotten worse due to us reporting it! This SCHOOL PROMOTES BULLYING FROM KIDS AND STAFF!!!

This school is so below avg. It dosnt have any contact with parents and when parents have concerns they are swept under a rug! My kids have been treated very poor here by staff and other students and NOTHING IS DONE!! About it.

OMG!! How can kids get an education here!! They are to be to worried about what is going to happen to them on a bus, in a hall way or a bathroom and the staff just tells them to ignore it and get over it!! My kids cry to stay home on a reg.!!!! Someone needs to do something at this school!!!

I wish I had the money to MOVE!!! But like most we are here and not going anywhere and the kids have to pay for it by going to this school!!! Kids are embarrassed by staff and beat up by students and nothing is done here! I have spoken to MANY parents who are in the same situation and we want to picket the school!!!! It seems we are the only ones who care!!

At first I thought this school was just what we were looking for, but them my kids kept coming home crying and with marks on them. I talked with the principal and didnt over look how nothing was done! he just told them to tell, so now they come home and cry that they try to tell and are told that "they" the staff dosnt want to hear it and to just ignore it???? My kids are only 5 and 9, even in the court of law this would be delt with but not at this school.

I have 3 girls that have attended Corinth. My youngest is in 2nd grade. I adore this school. I've been involved here for 10 years as I have two older girls that are almost out of high school. I volunteer once a week in the classroom and by being involved I see all the dedication and hard work that goes into educating our children there. My daughter loves going to school. She jumps out of bed and is happy to be taken to school in the morning. The teachers are dedicated, the classes small, Teachers strive to make the learning experience fun. I just wish there were more parent involvement. This is what would improve the school experience for our kids. Also the musical the kids put on last year was adorable and put on well. Much hard work went into that from staff kids, and parents. Way to go Corinth!

Corint-Holders has provided my second-grade daughter with a great education and a great learning environment. The teachers and administration genuinely care about the students.

Posted July 27, 2009

My daughter failed the reading part of the EOG. She missed passing by one point and attended summer school which was required by Johnston County School System, only to be retained to the third grade. My husband and I tried to speak to the principle only to find out that she has moved to a new school and once again we have a new principle. How can parents get anything done in our school if every school year Corinth Holder receives a new principle. Her teacher is not returning to the school this year. How can children be successful If they can not keep teachers or principles. I am looking into placing my daughter into a new school, that understands that my daughter is more than her test grade.

This school provides an average experience for children. Communication with parents is not a top priority.

I have three children at Corinth Holders Elementary. My oldest is in fourth grade. I have seen a lot of improvements over the past five years at this school. I am very proud to say that I am a part of the Corinth Holders Community. The school offers many fun activities both academically and extracurricular. My children love going to Corinth Holders because they have a support team of staff, teachers, & administration that show compassion and love for the children. I feel very confident when my children walk out the door to get on the bus and start their day off to school, that they are going to come home in the afternoon with good comments as to how their day went. I thank the good Lord above for Corinth Holders School.

I have seen some good teachers here but there is alot of teachers that come and go. I have had a very bad experiance with one of my children two years in a row. The teachers really need to read the code of ethics. They are leaving a mark on the children forever, not always in a good way.

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.
