    I love this school. I have 2 children that have attended Weeksville Elementary and I cannot say enough good things. The Principal Mr. Jolly is wonderful. He knows all the kids by name. The teachers communicate with the parents and they really care about the children. I moved specifically to be in the Weeksville Elementary School district and it was the best decision I ever made.

    Awesome. I am so grateful to have the option of sending my daughter to this school.

    The principle Mr. Jolly (what an appropriate name!) loves the students and has every single name down within the first week on the new school year. He is very active with the students and sends good children to his office just to congratulate them on how well they are doing. It is a small school but this is more of a positive thing than a negative one. Everyone loves the teachers and the teachers love the children. Academics are very high at Weeksville due to the awesome teachers. Some teachers are only at work because they are being paid but I trully believe--and know---that's not the reason the teachers are working at WES.

    I agree this is the best possible school a child can attend. My children all do and have done well in this scool for years. The teachers all keep in close contact with the parents and let you know what is going on with your child from week to week. I give Weeksville an A+

    This was the best school my children have ever attended. The warmth compassion and dedication to education is unmatchable in this county.

    I could not be happier and more proud to be a Weeksville parent. My son is excelling and is being challenged by caring and intelligent teachers and role models. You almost have to go to the school to believe the amount of warmth and spirit. You can tell when a school has a great leader because the teachers and other staff are happy which in turn makes for a wonderful learning environment. The parent involvement has a lot to do with the success of this school also. All around it is an outstanding school and the reason that we decided to buy a house in Weeksville school district was to give our children the opportunity to experience excellence.

    I just began working at Weeksville Elementary and I believe that has the highest level of teacher excitement that I have ever seen. The students are great and so is the administration. I wish that I lived in Pasquotank County so that one day my children would be able to attend this school.

    Awesome!! The principal and the teachers have a genuine love for educating children. This school exceeded any expectation I had. It is a shame that children have to go from such an outstanding school into an inadequate sub-standard middle school.
