My daughter graduated 8th grade.This has been the worst year of teachers.Passages being read out of the Bible is not allowed in public school unless it is Bible Class.The classes were Health&Science.The passages were out of revelation after the Japan disaster.Talking about the end of the world in Health&Science is not part of the subject.My daughter's English teacher was horrible.I consistently wrote on the progress reports that I wanted a conference.I also called to schedule a conference & she answered & said she was in the middle of class that it was best to email.Email never lead to anything.She just kept avoiding me,would forget to hand out fundraiser forms until the day the fundraiser was due,&forgot to turn in the forms from students that needed scholarship assistance w/Outerbanks trip.It delayed getting started on selling the pizza passes.My daughter's Science teacher just up & quit w/no explanation in the last few weeks of school.Her Math teacher would take 45min.of class to rant about taking her to daughter to the DMV.She would complain she wasn't getting paid enough to teach them&would get mad at the students & take a Kleenex box & smash it on the chalkboard out of anger.

I have relocated from New York. My daughter attended private school since preschool. The attention we have recieved from North West Cabarras Middle has been incredible. The teachers very attentive and caring. For once my daughter looks forward to attending school each day. This makes her more eager to learn and want to participate in any school activities. We have no regrets whatsoever transfering our daughter to this school. If something is not understood, she loves the fact that her teachers will take the extra time to explain and help until understood. Excellent Staff.

I am a new parent to North Carolina going from Philadelphia, I am so happy to have found NW Cabarrus Middle School for my son. I have found the teachers to be caring, supportive, and always available for any concerns or questions I may have about my sons process or just how is he adjusting. I'm new to NC, so I was very much concerned about his safety, thank God and Principal and staff at NW Cabarrus Middle school they assure me that their school was safe and they prove it to me. My sons loves school and I Thank NW Cabarrus for helping my son and I move here a success

I love this school. I think that it is very effective and that it helps my kids get better grades because of the teachers and how they help. They are always there to tutor them in the morning if they need it and never have any problems with it so I think that this school is very effective. They usually take care of the problems that my kids have with out any interfference from me. iI think that this is very creditable. They also have handled this mascot changing thing very well so I credit them for that to. That is my opinion so yea.

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.
