New Town Elementary School NC Report Card

  • October 2022

    Dear Parents and Guardians:

    Federal guidelines require that schools provide you with updates about our school’s overall achievement through the North Carolina School Report Card (SRC). This school report card includes important information about each individual school as well as student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, student discipline, instructional resources, and teacher quality.

    North Carolina evaluates its elementary schools based on End-of-Grade (EOG) assessment proficiency and overall student growth (by measuring expected progress against actual progress), specifically in grades 3, 4 and 5. During the 2021-22 school year, New Town Elementary School (NTES) received a school performance total of 84, which equates to a report card rating of "B" and narrowly missed "A" status by one point. Our school remains in the top one percent of elementary schools in North Carolina, ranking 26 out of more than 2,600 elementary schools in the state, and our Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students finished the year with an overall reading proficiency of 91%. 

    I encourage you to review our school’s full Report Card  as well as the Union County Public Schools report. 

    New Town Elementary prides itself on delivering a quality education to all students. Our dedicated staff provides a standards-based education that is focused on student learning and data-driven results. Our staff works diligently to provide the enrichment and/or intervention needed for all students. Meeting the diverse needs of each student remains the school’s top priority.

    Just as important, the New Town community works to provide a positive and caring environment for our students. Our active parent volunteer base and PTA further enrich what we are able to offer our students. Students expand their horizons by participating in character education, cultural arts events, community service projects, and educational field trips. Parent involvement in our HAWK community is very important to the success of our school.

    The past few years have been difficult for everyone.  Our school, like many schools across the country, had to respond to the shifting educational environment presented during the pandemic. This school data evidences that the effects of learning loss still affected our overall school performance this past school year.

    The staff at New Town Elementary pledge to do everything within our power to ensure that your child is safe, happy, and learning. Thank you for supporting our school, and helping ensure we continue to build on our Hawksome tradition of excellence! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. As always, we appreciate the opportunity to serve your child and your ongoing support of the work underway at our school.

    Elizabeth Allen, Principal
