I found this school to be outstanding in the office staff, administrators,teachers and support staff. I would suggest this school to any parent that is looking for their child to go to school to learn! My son did a 100% turnaround after coming from a school in the same district that was not "child centered"

This school is an urban city school. Great teachers, parents and students make this school the best.

We have 3 kids here right now, and they are all pretty happy there. I loath the amount of homework all grades are burdened with, but it's no better anywhere in CMS. The staff is usually very nice & helpful. The principal has never been friendly to me, and I am in the office often. Kindergarteners read quite well by the time they finish their 1st year. We love the arts! Sadly, musical instrument classes are not during school hours at extra expense. Impossible for us due to busing.

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.
