We lived in the North Belmont district and were investigating the public schools in 2012. We attended the August start-of-year "open house" to learn more about the school. The building seemed a little dark and poorly maintained. Families crowded into the cafeteria for the principal's presentation. There were not enough seats. Many were left standing. The principal was ready to start his presentation, turned on the slide projector, displaying the first slide on the screen which read something like, "Changes to Title I Poverty Area School Program"... I thought, "Whoa... THIS is the start of the presentation?" I would like to have heard what the principal had to say, but his microphone didn't work. After a few minutes of fumbling around, with half of the audience shouting that they couldn't hear, the principal decided to postpone the presentation, and had everyone break up to visit the classrooms first. We had seen enough. A worn out building, a "poverty area" school with 3 out of 4 kids qualifying for some form of financial assistance, weak test scores, and a principal who can't put together a simple presentation... we decided we'd have to look into other options for our child.

I think this is the best school in gaston county. The principal and assistant principal are wonderful. They have the best teachers and staff. You feel like you are at home and not a number like at the larger schools. Peggy Banner-Hoyle

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.
