Posted September 26, 2013

This is my first child to go to school and I have never felt so welcomed and assured when I walked into this school. The teachers are amazing and always makes sure your questions are answered and so friendly. They keep you up to date with whats going on for the week. I love the weekly calls I get to let me know whats instore for the week with the kids. His teacher sends the parents email about whats going on in the class with a group photo of the classroom. I would have to say ive never been so satisfied and happy with a 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.
