This is a good school. The teachers and staff are caring and go the extra mile to make the year memorable and instructive for the kids. My daughter is very happy there.

I am very involved in my children's education. This is a great school. The teachers and administration have high expectations for all students at J H Gunn.

I am a parent who has 1 child that has attended K-3rd so far and with the change in principals came a change in teacher retention. I also do not like the demographics and feel they are unequal and feel teachers spend entirely too much time disciplining children and not educating. Sadly, we are seeking another school to insure my child's education is the primary focus.

I cannot say it loud enough - i love J.H. Gunn! this is my son's 2nd year there and i cannot think of a better school for him to attend. The teachers are caring and loving towards the students. The principal, ms. 'G' treats them as if they are her own and has a hands on relationship with them. Ms. Pendergrass was my son's 3rd grade teacher and she and i were side-by-side partners in his education. She cared for him, called me when she had concerns, and kept him close to her heart, she is an exceptional teacher, she teaches the whole child. This year my son was blessed to be assigned in ms. Price.....She is awesome to say the least. We will be moving out of the district and the fact that my son will no longer be attending J.H. Gunn brings tears to my eyes.

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.
