Their is a genuine warmth and concern for students and their families as well as staff and faculty well being at Windsor Park. Their is evident rigor in the classrooms during instructional time. This school is a hidden jewel. Recent efforts are being made to bridge the gap between Non native English speaking parents and the rest of the Windsor Park Family. As a result, I believe student achievement will continue to increase as well as an awareness of the positive contributions of such a culturally diverse student population and staff.

The school has a new staff this year. The new staff seems to give a younger more vibrant impression. However the due to financial restraints and the same standard of teaching the results will probably be the same. I think the new staff is only a cosmetic fix to a much more deep rooted problem.

This is a pretty good school particularly because my daughter goes here and she is in all of the advanced classes. Even though this school might hvae a low level, the smartest student in the school cannot beat that certain level.

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.
