I attended that school last year. My personal experience was not too good. The teachers were nice but 2 out of 4 teachers I had did not know what they were lecturing. I think that I only passed their class because I got the curriculum online. This school also has very disruptive students. I remember that last years 7th graders (now 8th graders) would do really bad stuff out of school. They would even have their own 'kissing hall'. I think this school is not as bad as Forbush high school but needs a lot of improvement.

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.
