Randolph Middle School has been one of the best school experiences I've partaken in so far. Though there are students who attend who show zero respect--I see it daily in talking back to the teacher, making wise comments, and refusing to listen-- there is a large population of the student body that's there to make good use of their time in middle school. The teachers are phenomenal. They try to become more than just a person who stands in front of the classroom and gives you something to do; They try to become more of a human being to their class and show their friendly sides to relate with everyone under their wing. Though it still suffers from typical teenager drama, what school doesn't, and Randolph has proved to exceed my expectations in what I was looking for in a 6th, 7th, and 8th grade education.

Randolph is probably the most academically focused public Middle School in Charlotte. It does also have disabled kids, whose test scores are factored into the overall scores of the school. Any parent considering a Middle School in Charlotte should look into the demographics their child fits into before making a decision. The classes are small, few discipline problems, and the kids are very outward and special. What attracted our family most to Randolph was that every student we met looked us in the eye when speaking. Very special place.

My daughter recently left Alexander Graham for Randolph. I echo the parent above, Randolph Middle is often overlooked but a fantastic program. Languages and 'specials' are easier to access at this school, mostly because of the IB focus. We've been delighted with after-school activities. Randolph is wonderfully diverse, the teachers are incredibly caring. The principal has been very competent in our estimation.

As the March 2004 Newsweek article attests, Randolph is a great city school. Its test scores are doing well and rising; it has excellent diversity in race, learning and physical disabilities,gifted and income levels. It's also a magnet school where all students study the International Baccalaureate program focusing on international studies and the Paideia program emphazing critical thinking. I searched long and hard before selecting this school and I have been very pleased. More importantly, my child loves it.

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.
