Posted March 13, 2008

Its a smaller school with smaller class sizes. the teachers focus more on education, and behavioral problems are never an issue. If you hate drama and want to just 'focus' on your academics, this school is perfect. Especially if you want to get ahead in your credits with free college classes offered to you and don't have to purchase not even one book. However, the down-side is that there are no sports teams or official clubs. There is no art, theater, dance, etc. Though the students have lots of freedom the advantage is not fully taken because there is a tendency to 'slack-off'. But before you say, 'Not interested' the school hours are from 12:30pm-5:30pm. No more waking up early. (transportation is not provided because the classes are on a Durham Tech Community Campus)

I love it, my daughter loves it. She's graduating a semester early with four college courses already under her belt. The teachers care, the school is small...it's perfect!

My daughter has blossomed at this school. Because students can take college classes at Durham Tech, she has been challenged to take classes not normally available to high school kids. Her college GPA is 3.5, and she'll have credit to transfer to the college of her choice. The class schedule works for her too, instead of early morning bus runs when she's half-asleep.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Course (EOC) tests to assess high school students in Algebra I, English II, and Biology. The EOC tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
