    I moved to Raleigh in February and registered because this was my children's base school. My neighbor informed me that the school was horrible but by this time I had already registered my kids into school. I live in a neighborhood with a couple hundred houses and not one other child in the whole neighborhood attends this school. Within the first week my kids were left at school when my oldest informed the bus driver that her sisters were not on the bus he said that he could not wait for them nor did he inform staff there. They have been dropped off at the other side of neighborhood in rain and told to walk home. The teachers and administrators threaten to call the police on the children for every little thing they do. I informed them of my middle child's disability while registering and they have ABSOLUTELY NO staff that I have come in contact with there who knows how to deal with children with disabilities. My children have become more angry and withdrawn in the last 3 months since attending this school. If you care about your children's well-being and education PLEASE do not send them here!! This is BY FAR the worst school ever!

    Fox Road Elementary is wonderful!! Unfortunately they are small and in need of more space. The teachers counselor principles are all the best I have ever encountered and I have gone through several elementary schools. When my daughter was younger she attended several elementary schools due to reassignments almost every year. finally when we came to Fox Road it was stability. I now have a son who is completing his last year here and I have NEVER had a problem. They recognize learning behaviors and adjust accordingly to benefit the child w/o labeling. If there is a discipline problem it is handled fairly and parents are notified immediately from the classroom. Small group & independent counseling is available for students who have experienced trauma and the counselor keeps an open door policy for the kids so they come whenever they feel like it. I absolutely love this school.

    Well I will say I am shocked by the pass reviews and I feel really different. I hate and I mean hate my kids going to this bad school! Trust me when I tell you this is not the best school ever. First test score are horrible! Second when you walk down the hall it feels like a prision. The school is old that is true but at least put some light and life in it like color or something.The receptionist wow! I dont know how to say this but she really needs to be removed. Her personality seems like she really hates her job. She has the worst atitude. She questions the parent about their kids. She really needs proper training on have to speak and carry herself in a pleasent manner. Oh and one more thing not one of my kids have a white classmate...why is that?

    I think that Fox Road is a wonderful school. It certainly doesn't deserve the poor score that it has gotten simply because of poor EOG test scores. Yes they are a Title I school and they have a large ESL population which unfortunately brings test scores down but each student is noticed and taken care of and encouraged in their education. My son is an accelerated reader as well as very good at math and he has always gotten the extra attention and challenges that he needed to progress and suceed. When my son was in kindergarten I was able to volunteer every week in his classroom and when he was in 1st grade I volunteered twice a month and was very pleased with the teachers and staff that I was able to observe close up. The Principal is fabulous and knows who her students are as well as inspiring staff.

    I love this school. I was very skeptical about my son transferring there because of the large population and the mix of students. But that changed quickly. I'm going to miss the faculty and the students. This school took very good care of both my kids. The staff is very genuinely involved and truly cared about the students. I will Always remember FOX ROAD Elementary .

    The teachers and staff at this school have been excellent but the student population exceeds Wake County's Goals for Free and Reduced Lunch. It is a title 1 school terribly overcrowded and is not being supported by the School Board. It feels as if you go to Fox Road you are viewed as a stepchild by the school system. They have 18 trailers and nearby schools such as Wildwood have only 8 trailers. They have a very small gym and to 'help out' cafeteria crowding they now have a trailer for a lunchroom as well. It is so sad to see this school have to take second best picking because they happen to be a little older a lot smaller and full of working lower middle class families. The staff is fabulous but they are overworked with too few resources. The PTA works hard but is ineffficient - They need help!
