I started going here in 1st grade and finished 5th back in 2016. I really do think this is a great school. As you can see it ranks in the top 1% in all of NC, and that's crazy. That's really hard to achieve. The teachers I had were really good. They don't push testing success, but the students there still achieve in the top 1%. That's pretty darn good for a public school. I have to say things have changed there. It used to be an almost technology free school not even 10 years ago, but now they use it a lot from what I've heard. But still, every school uses a ton of technology, so it's not a surprise. When I was there, they used chrome books in a good way, for coding and things like that which really made things enjoyable. Great school and if you had the choice between Providence Spring or McKee Elem. or Matthews Elem., choose Providence Spring. I promise, your kid will get one heck of an education at PSE.
