    Aycock Elementary School is the best school in Vance County! The school has an excellent staff that put children first. I am so glad my child attends Aycock.

    Aycock Elementary is a great family oriented school. The principal assistant principal and the teachers try to involve parents in all aspects of their child's education. The teachers are willing to go above and beyond their duties to ensure the students success. Aycock also provides a family friendly website featuring students daily activities. In my opinion this is the best public school option in Vance county for families. Maybe that is why many parents who do not live in the school's district try to get their child approval to attend.

    My child has been attendding Aycock school for three years now. The teachers there are great. Not just one teacher but all of them are awesome. They pull together as a group to see that my child and others learn what they need to know but they also make enjoyable for them too. They only have 6 1/2 hrs with them a day but you can bet that each child gets the one on one they need. We have a new principal this year. at first i did not think that she was going to be as good as Mr. Wiggins. But I think that she is going to make a great difference in each and every one of the students there. I am telling you if your child goes to aycock school you will very please in the family oriented atmophere that Aycock has.
