I think this school is great if you as a parent are of a certain stature in the community. The office staff is extremely rude and show no empathy. Communication is non-exsistant, and the principal and staff as a whole is judge mental and inconsiderate. I'm sure this school is a wonderful fit it you fit the certain "mold" that they want their student body and parents to be, but if not, good luck!

Some teachers are good, and definitely some poor teachers who don't really care and treat children without much empathy. There is quite a bit of negative reinforcement. The new principal is more concerned with students, engages the children and is not hyper-focused on the rules written in the handbook. The school could use more creativity allowed for teachers and more flexibility for parental involvement.

This school is midway through its second year and the students are making significant growth, due to the amazing teaching staff!

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.
