My child is much happier here and he is excited about being able to choose electives, as well as the fact he likes his teachers and staff.

This school is great,a very eye-opening experience for young individuals


Posted January 20, 2006

I am very pleased with the fact that my son is allowed to choose electives. As a whole Clarkton is OK, nothing spectacular. The Administration needs work in order to become more parent friendly. If parents dont feel welcome they will not interact with the teachers. The Ms Mena is not very helpful to parents as a whole and there is a great lack of communication between teachers and parents.

Quality of the school is good. Availability to activites in general education courses. School clubs are at a low not many and they need more. Parent involvement is very low.

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.
