Some good teachers here-some unfriendly ones who just want a check too. Average rating. Old school is not kid friendly-needs more teacher supervision in halls in the morning.

This school is wonderful. It has amazing teachers who care about the students. The after school ativities are lacking a bit, but the great teachers and classes make up for it. I would recomend this school to anyone.

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.
