I think this is a great school. I love the principal's involvement. He can always be seen among the students, plus he makes a genuine effort to know each of them by name. The teachers are also great. My daughter transferred here from another school and it is so much better than her previous school.

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.
