My son goes to this school and I have to say he had a bad year last year and they worked with him. Everyone is really sweet- the principal is amazing and all the teachers are amazing!

I went to this school myself. It was a great school then and still is! My son loves it there.

This school has a warm small town feel. Teachers are caring and give many extra hours into creating classrooms that are condusive to learning. More funding would enable this staff to go above and beyond all the others in stokes county! Go Mustangs!

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.
