My son was allowed to transfer to Sedgefield back in November! Since we transferred him, His grades have improved, He loves his teachers, and has begged to attend again next year even though he could go to Southwest Middle School and ride a bus. The teachers, and staff at sedgefield are top notch! I have yet to go to the school where I was not met with a friendly greeting. This can't be said for our former school! I highly reccommend this school!

I am not a parent here, but I am a former student. When I attended Sedgefield, I was in the IB program there. The IB program was good. Sedgefield has a wonderful orchestra teacher. Another good thing about this school was that it was very fun for students there. The staff know how to make a student feel welcome.

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.
