My school is awesome!!:-D I like that we have PROPS celebrations when we earn our PROPS! I think our school could improve on the way some of the students and teachers behave. We can improve on the quality of food in the cafeteria for breakfast and lunch.

Quail has a great friendship with Forest Hill Church. Together they have great family fun nights that are a great way for families to enjoy a free dinner and group activities for students and adults. The students get to enjoy their school in a different way. We love it

Awesome I guess. I love my friends there, and the teachers are pretty cool, I wish they had more options for foreign languages. At the moment they only have French and Spanish. They're adding German for the 2013-2014 school year though, so I'm looking forward to that. This is my second year at Quail, and I would definitely change some of the stuff on the lunch menue, and some of the rules are kind of unfair. Like I really don't like how we always have to stay to the right side of the hall. It makes stuff so much more crowded. And I think there should be more in the way of the preforming arts. I am in orchestra and Drama/Shakespeare and I really wanted to join Men In Black, but that's only for band students. Either way, at pep rallies, the choir will sing, dance will dance, and men in black will do their thing. Either way, I kind of want to be able to do an orchestra performance or something, because band is like, all high and mighty, and no one cares about orchestra. Oh yeah, and the firewall is definitely annoying. I know that CMS doesn't want us viewing some stuff, but it's really annoying when I'm trying to do a project, and I can't look something up.

New Principle is awesome! My daughter is in 7th grade and enjoys her school, just typical middle school kids there has been a few fights, however with the schools new principle changes have been made.. I do feel however the 7th grade dean needs to toughen up a bit,. I also I have found it takes time to get any sort of responses, on class schedule changes.. I am still currently waiting for a call back.. other then that the school is ok.

I have found from experience with several CMS schools that strong and caring administration is they key to the school's success. Principal Sullivan is great and if you look at the historical performance of the school you can see she has made a positive influence. The school is diverse which probably helps it get more resources. The counselors and most teachers are responsive. Students are placed in core classes according to their level (standard, plus and honors). Teachers have to be flexible because this is not a school with homogenous kids all from the same backgrounds. So if your child doesn't fit into a neat box this is probably a better school than private or more homogenous schools.

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.
