Children come first along with raising them up and educating them


Posted November 4, 2008

The teachers communicate with the parents!!! My child's teacher calls just to tell me how good my child has done with a test or project. It's a wonderful school staffed with wonderful people!

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.
