The staff is fabulous! They get to know their students and care about all of them. They were the only school in our county to receive the top educational award this year!

I am a student at Cane Creek Middle School also known as CCMS. This school is so amazing. Mrs. Rhoney the principal is so sweet and cares really deeply about each and everyone of the kids here. I have gone here 6 and 7 and I have had the best experience. There are so many teachers here who are committed to teaching, and they really want you to lurn. The fine arts program is fabulous. The Band is incredible as well as the drama department and the chorus. It is so hard to find a middle school for your kid were they are happy but I can assure you that they will love it at Cane Creek. I love Cane Creek I just wish they had a high school too.

Cane Creek is a wonderful middle school experience! My older daughter went to a different middle school in the area and had the more typical middle school dramas. My two other daughters are at Cane Creek and we have had nothing but the best experience. The Principal is very hands on and cares very deeply about the kids and the school. The teachers are very open and seem very connected with the students. Wish they had a high school like Cane Creek to transition to.

Best school year my son has ever had academically. This is definitely a reflection of the school. Wish they had a high school also!

New school four years old so building and facilities fairly new; already full to capacity because of enormous influx in area. Overall, best middle school in system.

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.
