This school gets ZERO stars. My child who was once a happy, fun-loving child who enjoyed school and making new friends has been bullied at this school to the point she is physically ill on a daily basis. The teachers including the principal and school counselor are aware of the bullying and have done NOTHING to punish the multiple students behind it. Instead my child was written up for the one time she stood up to these students!!!! I am withdrawing my child in the middle of the school year and sending her elsewhere so she can enjoy school and enjoy life again.

All theses other parents writing reviews on this schools clearly doesn't know what happens behind it's doors. Or at least they dont't know too much about it now. This school is chaotic and should be avoided if at possible. I regret sending my child here. The students are wild, fights break out more than often, and I would say that it can be unsafe. Not to mention the test scores are horrible which you can see here on this site.

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.
