Estes Hills Elem.school, there is soo much that makes it a great. Estes truly is a school family. They embody all the values that are important for a child to have in order to have a positively productive life. Estes is diverse and culturally minded. They truly live up to their beautiful motto, "At Estes Hills we help our eagles soar, so that one day they may take flight." My kids and I are very proud to be a part of the Estes Family. We love this school and all that it has to offer. Thank you all at Estes that strive to keep this a great school family. Thank you for loving and supporting our kids, and our families.Proud Eagle Mom-Mrs. Jackson-Diallo.Go Eagles!

As far as the test scores are concerned, it is because NC changed the state test as well as the curriculum. They are using "Common Core" along with most of the rest of nation. The test is supposed to align with Common Core. It is a very challenging assessment. You will see that every school's test scores at the elementary and middle school level dropped with the implementation of the new test. The principal is NOT the same principal. That principal who was at Estes is now at Northside Elementary. The principal that is now at Estes is AMAZING. He is a very good leader who loves kids. My child who attends Estes went to a very highly rated school before moving to Chapel Hill. He thinks Estes is even better than that school and he looks forward to going to school every day. Estes is an old school, but with an awesome playground, a warm inviting feeling, and the teachers are A++.

I was reading some of the comments on this site and I wanted to clarify a couple of things. I have a son who started Estes in 2012-2013 as a kindergartener. In 2012-2013 Estes Elementary lost their principal who was with Estes for many years and the VP. From Jan. 2013-March of 2013 they had and interim principal who was brought back from retirement. In 2013 they hired Mr. Ware who, if I remember correctly, started in September of 2013. I have not had any direct contact with him so I cannot speak to that; however he knows my child s name and greets him by his name every time he sees him. He also seems to know all the other kids by name. He is visible around the school, either walking the hallways, stopping by in the classroom or by the car circle or busline. I have not heard anything bad about this principal and it seems to me that both the teachers and the kids are content. Teachers are awesome and I have nothing bad to say about any of them. As for the test scores, I wondered the same but if you look at the demographics of the school you will see that it has changed in the past couple of years. In addition, recent test and curriculum changes may have led to lower scores.

In response to the question below regarding the negative comments about the principal of this school, it is the same principal. Ours was one of the complaints regarding this principal. We were aware of other parents who provided information on an anonymous basis due to fear of their child being singled-out.
