My son started here in the middle of the 1st grade coming from Harnett County and he is now in the middle of the 2nd grade and he's doing 300% better! This place is like a miracle worker. He's been fortunate enough to have the same teacher last year and this year. Mrs. Perozo and Mrs. Lett are AMAZING! He also works with Mrs. Goodwin for extra reading help. As a single mom I struggled so hard with him with homework and school. In Harnett County he hated school and from the time I got home from work until bedtime, homework was a fight. Now, he sometimes argues but he does not want to let his teachers or me down; he does it! He loves school now! We love this school. I could never dream of living outside of this school zone. Thank you Broadway!!!

5 stars The staff at the school are caring and loving people. I don't have to worry about my child at school. She feels safe and secure. The atmosphere is inviting. My daughter has two very nice teachers this year Mrs. Wishart and Mrs Cox. They both make learning fun. Many thanks to them! But, all the techers are great. Tammie Kelly, a parent

The teachers at the school really care about real life teaching especially Mrs. Lisa Howard, Ms. Shannon Thomas, Mrs. Cauthen, and Mrs. Angela Pope. I appreciate all they did for my boys and all the other kids that had these great teachers! Lisa Wishart, parent

This year my children have very good teachers my 2nd grader has Mrs. McNeill and my 3rd grader has Mrs. Smith. They are very good and have kept me informed on everything that goes on with my child in their class room. My children are very happy this year with their teachers and excited about going to school! I can see improvement with both children and I'm very pleased as a parent. I feel education is very important and it appears so do these 2 teachers! Cheri Freeman

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.
