HORRIBLE SCHOOL! Serious lack of common sense with faculty at this school. No communication with parents. The principle and assistant principle are both below par. Do yourself and your children a favor and find a decent school.

All three of my children and all three of my grandchildren have attended/ or attend Emma. My youngest grandson is in the 5th grade, Ms Miller's class, and Emma by far is the best school in the area. Thank you Teachers of Emma for all you have done for my children. You are the best!!!!

Over a 20 year period, having my children attend Emma School, many foster children and now my grandchildren, I think Emma is the greatest. I have watched it grow over the years to become even better. Thank god for the wonderful teachers, the academic programs and extracurricular activities the school offers. I only wish they still had a head start program available. The cuts that our president made have hurt many children by taking this away from Emma School. The head start program and teachers were top notch and we need head start to return. There is a lot of pride in this school and it shows the second you enter the door.

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.
