this school has no rating due to teachers and miscommunication between them and students and also because they are unable to provide books for each child to have their own in order for them to bring them home. Where do all the tax dollars go because it sure isnt on school interest. Its a shame that a child must suffer because they are not provided the appropriate education tools. Some children due not learn as fast as others and should be able to have their own book to take home if they want to work on their own. Another thing there is to much absenteeism of the teachers , all people have to be out for things some times but I have never seen any school let thier teachers be out as much as you do. They should have guidelines just like the students.

The English Dept is the most creative of any public school I'm aware of. Most of this is due to the efforts of Ms. G. Also, the math Dept enhances the learning process with creative measures. Why is there not a substantial art program?

Andrews Middle School is one of the best schools around. The teachers and principals are most helpful and they do not hesitate to let you know if your child is behind or they are doing a great job. Also, there is no racial bias all are treated fairly and equally. Mr. Higdon is one of the best principals around and the students love him. He is a fair and just person, who checks on students and gets to the bottom of any problem before they get bigger. My kids love this school and to transfer would absolutely be out of the question.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
