i feel like the school focus should be on the learning but the staff is more interested on what the students are wearing.

I have the most respect for all employees at PCHS.They have been most helpful with my grandson ,he is hearing impaired, had other minor health problems which everyone was very concerned with. .They kept me informed by phone or mail about what was going on with him.The school nurse called his doctor to better understand his medical problem. The bus driver, cafateria staff all worked with him.All his teachers were wonderful people.They have some wonderful academic programs.

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.
