The principle leadership doesn't even deserve one star. They give the most necessary amount of work to my child. They never ha a holiday off.

I have gone to this school and it's terrible. I've been to at least ten schools in my life, and this is the worst. The students are not challenged at all and most probably can't read past an eighth grade reading level. The teachers are hypocritical, nosey, and just plain rude. One of the rules is that your phone can't be out the moment you enter the building, this wouldn't be such a big issue with me if it weren't for two things: 1) If your caught with your phone the teacher takes it for a week, weekends and all, you can't pay 15$ to get it back and parents can't drive up and pick it up either, they keep it. 2) Teachers and staff are ALWAYS on their phones. Also the teachers generally just don't seem interested in teaching their students, it's just a job to them. Also the cafeteria is just disgusting. There are janitors, but their too busy making freinds and being on their phones to clean. The one good thing about this school is you can have crazy hair, pink, purple, green, anything. But please, don't make your kid go to this school. They have computers from 1991... seriously. Worst school ever.

This school has some nice classes but there are also severe problems. The new principal is very strong handed and seems to rule by fear. Several teachers have left involuntarily and been shown the door. It has left many of my daughter's friends sad. There is almost no parent involvement and the building is a mess. The budget cuts have had a terrible effect on the school.

Its a Great School. It still needs some improvement with the new principal and all, but it is wonderful.

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.
