Brogden Middle school offers programs such as the BETA Club. This club allows my child to learn new and exciting things in addition to the classroom teachings.

Great teachers (especially 6th grade) Ms. Wellington has changed this school for the better! There is fairness and equality throughout the entire school.

Brogden Middle School in my book rates a 4. When ever there's a problem it is took care of right away. The teachers and staff makes the students and parents feel wanted and they do not treat any one different. Princapal Moore makes sure that all students are respected as human beings and young adults and not as if they were still in primary schools. I feel that Brogden Middle has taught my daughters responsibilty and has been a major part of their growing into the young ladies they have become.

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.
