My family and I recently moved from CA to Chapel Hill because of the schools. We are more than impressed with Ephesus. The Principal, Mrs. Creamer, is amazing. She knows all the kids names even after the first day. She takes a real interest in the students. My daughter loves French that she is taking for 3 days a week in first grade. The technology in the school is impressive. My daughter's class told a story about snowmen using I-pads. I like the way they reward children with special activities instead of with food. They are very active in their antibullying campaigns and the security seems top notch (after school security is a little questionable.) Overall, we've been VERY impressed with Ephesus and can't complain a bit! Highly recommend!

I am a grandmother who home schooled my granddaughter last year because her needs were not being met. This is her first year at Ephesus and already the school is addressing her needs and my granddaughter is feeling more confident with each passing day

Ephesus is a warm and welcoming school that tries hard to balance the needs of a population that is diverse in economics, race, learning styles, and educational readiness.

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.
