If you have a choice, this is not the school for a well rounded education. Both of my children graduated from this school, so I have 6 years experience. The administration is too worried about themselves and their school "grade" to give a hoot about the students. Also,the absence policy is absurd. The faculty cares more about sports wins then education and right and wrong. It is very hard to teach a child good moral values the the adults in their schools contradict everything you have been teaching them. The system needs an overhaul!

This school is the worst school I have ever been to. They don't punish the people who should be punished, no instead they punish the ones that actually try to do what's right. This school does not deserve a rating. This school is a living hell. And get this if you miss a day of school to go to a funeral, you still get counted absent. Even if you leave after 11 A.M. for a dentist or a doctor's appointment, you still get counted absent and have to take the exam. If you are planning to go to this school, I reccomend you stay where you're at, or go to St. Stephens. Trust me this school is not worth the effort.

I have never seen a school that needs leadership in itself! Kids cussing in the classroom and only get sent to a counselor. When they sould be expelled! I feel sorry for the teachers and students that have to put up with this that want to do what is right! Their is students in the world today that do not have morals or respect teached to them at home. But they sould enforce these rules at school!! It is not to late to take back the school just enforce the rules! Wish they would put bibles back in schools!!

I too am a parent with a student at Bunker Hill. I find it very disturbing that this school is rated one of the lowest in the state. i find it more disturbing that most of the faculty doesnt seem to mind it. I have met with the principal and the assistants on various occassions and although I feel that the principal himself would definately like to make improvements, but, for the most part, he is limited. I feel strongly that one of the assistants likes to "pick on" certain students in part because of their financial status in the community and in part because the situation has not been addressed by enough parents.

Many of the teachers at this school are extremely rude to students. One in particular actually called out the names of a few students who did not have insurance, myself being one of them. This was not appreciated whatsoever. This same teacher seems to have very sexist views and treats students who need the same discipline completely different. There is no need for this type of behavior from a teacher. I feel that this teacher should not work here due to the fact that situations like this have happened not just once, but many times. One of the assistant principals also treats some students better than others when the offense was greater and the student(s) deserved to be much more highly repromanded. I do not like this school and feel that many things need to be changed.

I am very dissapointed in the main priciple, i have had serval major commplaints from my self and other parents concerning disipline problems were some students were treated completely different than others. I have discussed this with the priciple the staff and members of the county school board and have recivied absoulty no help one so ever in my oppion this is the worst shool and school district that i have ever encoutered and am presently moving away from the area because of the lack of attention and from the school system. There is no parent teacher organization and no meetings between the two. If they were concerned about the children there would be. A one star is to much .

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.
