My daughter is in Kindergarten at this school. I am happy with the information she is learning as well as her reading level. I volunteer on Thursdays and I am pleased with the Principal and staff. There are many after school programs offered for math, science, and reading. My child's art work is very advanced and she always has a library book to read. I am very happy with this school.

We were not happy at this school. There are most definitely a few teachers (Kindergarten) who are not fit to be teachers and lack the qualities a parent would want around their children. We just moved from this school and are happy we did. The principal is very nice but the teachers do not try to challenge the smarter kids. The school is very old and sits right up next to the busy main road.

I can't submit enough about Moncure Elementary. The Principal, Teachers, Staff, and our PTO do so much to keep our school great. Teachers (and Principal) are approachable and work with parents to ensure that our children succeed. The school is a little on the older side but full of passion for learning and teaching. You know you have a great school when your children come home excited about what they did at school that day and when your oldest can transfer into Middle School easily.

We absolutely love Moncure! I have a kindergartener and a first grader; we could not be happier. I volunteer frequently and love the friendly office staff. My girls have two very different personalities and they were wonderfully placed with great teachers! I love that the principal comes to every event and out daily to talk to parents and students.

Nice people (parents, teachers, and staff) but is overcrowded. 700 students is too many for the number of special needs and challenged children this school has. This site lost my comphensive review of the school. Surrounded by too many businesses and too little green area. Library is too small for normal library activities. PE has 50 students per class. Music is understaffed and lacks some reasonable equipment to do more than introduce children to music.

Moncure is an excellent school, my kids just finished the 5th grade and I feel that this school has done a wonderful job preparing my children for the sixth grade. Thanks to all the Staff and Teachers

Moncure Elementary is a FABULOUS school which offers multiple tools and effective ways for our children to learn. Its a very parent friendly environment, even the Principal takes the time to meet and greet everyone. My son LOVES the school and so far has liked every teacher there. I am shocked to see such a low rating for this school. Its not accurate and parents should evaluate themselves before they ridicule other kids at the school. Kids behavior has a lot to do with parenting, don't blame the school b.c. your kid was disciplined or dealt with other types of personalities at the school. MONCURE IS AWESOME!

My son will be starting school at Moncure Elementary for the first time this year and I was so nervous because I was afraid the size of the school would intimidate him and I became a little more nervous seeing that the school only rated a 4 out of ten on this site, but after reading the reviews I feel like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. It's great to have sites like this were parents can see how the school rates. I think we're ready for this year and I am now excited for my son to start school, meet his new teachers and make new friends. Thanks Great Schools.

Anne Moncure is a wonderful Elementary School with a very friendly and welcoming environment where the administration, staff and parents are very involved in the well being of the students. I also feel that my daughter is getting a wonderful education and I am very surprised that there is only a rating of 6 for Anne Moncure (maybe the number was transposed incorrectly and should be a 9). =)

My second grader loves going to school at Anne E. Moncure every day. She is well matched to her teacher, and I have a confident student who is challenged just enough to keep up her self esteem. What more could a parent ask?
—Submitted by a parent


Posted March 11, 2010

I am really surprised that Moncure has rated only a 6 with greatschools.org. I feel this needs reevaluation. As far as the previous comment of lack of respect of students, this is not in any means a showing on the school but rather the parents, which I feel is most evident in ALL schools these days. This school is challenging, and I come from a lineof very strict DOD schooling from around the world, some of the best and finest and moncure shares most of the same great qualities which is hard to find in a public school. Moncure gives opportuinities to every parents almost every month, it a means of the parents wanting to be involved. There has been times when I would have free time and just walk in to see if anyone needed help, and the school was more than happy to accept my assistancce.

I currently have a child at Moncure who will be heading off to Middle School next year. Several of these earlier reviews were written when the school was transitioning to a new administration. None of those administrators are still in the school. We have a very active PTO who holds meetings monthly and all parents are invited. There are may activities that monthly for all to participate in. The music department has Chorus and Percussion clubs. The Art department has a Art club held weekly as well. The security is not 'Ft. Knox' like but we do require ID to visit a room and to sign a chold out (county policy) which are always a good idea. We love Moncure so much that I just requested a waiver for my youngest to start Kindergarten there next year as we moved to a different school district. This school ROCKS!!

My two boys went to Moncure last year before we moved to Hawaii. I was impressed with the teachers they had. One of my boys was in Mrs. Rodriguez's class. She was great! The other was in Miss Burdette's Class. Last year was her first year teaching but by the end of the year she was probably as seasoned as all the veteran teachers after having my son in her class. She was great. If you have a child going into 5th grade, I recommend her highly. Good Luck next school year. Mahalo!

This school is great! The entire staff at Moncure is helpful and caring. The principal and assistant principal are very involved in student activities and know each student personally. The school and its PTO have many opportunities for parents to be involved and to motivate students. The teachers are just as great!!!

this school made it very easy for my kindergartener to swich into from a north Carolina elementary school. The teachers are knowledgeable and very helpful and are very excited about what they do with the children. We love the p.t.o. Activities and how they show interest in each child.

I am very pleased with Moncure Elementary. The principal or vice principal is out every morning greeting kids and are both very approachable and quick to help when you ask. The school has a welcoming feeling and high excpectations for everyone that both my children and myself appreciate. You'll love it here.

Moncure is taking steps in the right direction. This year there are many opportunities to help out. School has increased the communication level immensely.

Moncure has a caring and dedicated staff. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved, the art room always welcomes volunteers, our PTO is also very involved with almost weekly opportunities for parents to participate in school enrichment. We offer both a chorus and a percussion ensemble for students to be involved in the music program beyond thier scheduled music time. Disrespect toward adults or other students is not tolerated. Most teachers frequently contact parents with positive information not only keeping them aware of any concerns. We take great pride in our students, we have a title one school that out preforms some more affluent schools. In the 06-07 year Moncure passed AYP (the federal standards to acredit schools) this can not be said for several other nearby schools.

Posted August 12, 2007

My child attended this school for half of a school year. There seemed to be a decent amount of work, but my child frequently did not feel challenged, or motivated. We were disappointed in the music program, or lack of. We were extremely disappointed by the lack of respect from students, in regards to fellow classmates and teachers. For myself I was frustrated with the fact that there was little parent/teacher contact and that there was little opportunity to get involved inside of the school.
