Three of my children currently attend Central and we will be sad to go. The teachers are wonderful and keep the kids motivated and the principal, Mrs. Jones, is wonderful. The kids all say that they have a lot of fun while they are learning and that they love the school. As a parent I have always been welcome to come to the school and participate in activities with the kids. Don't let the number rating fool you, Central is a wonderful school.

My son is in kindergarden and I was very nervous about sending him to 'big boy' school! But his teachers Mrs. Rose and Mrs. Sharp have taken great care of him and Nurse Kim has eased my medical needs!

Having fun while learning, doing lots of work,giving praise while being disciplined and keeping parents informed seem to be the motto of Central Elementary School. We are very thrilled to have our child learning here. Mrs. grunalt, one of the first grade teachers, is just the very BEST!

This is an excellent school. I am very impressed with the quality of the education my child is receiving. The principal is outstanding and her expectations of parents, students, faculty and staff are exceptional. I feel this is one of the most qualified schools in this district and would highly recommend this school to anyone who cares about the quality of their childs education.

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.
