The 2013 principal is so useless never returns call and does not seem to care like the previous principal .Eastern guilford middle school use to be a good school. Please listen to your children because teachers don;t always do what is right they have issues just like eveybody. is they have a problem with your child ,they will get bad mouthed to the other teacher and the cycle continues. Not at all happy with this school and i'm looking into magnet school.

I would have to agree with a statement that was previously made about the AP classes. While I attended Eastern, the classes were fun and easy and since no one actually learned anything in the class, the tests were a joke and no one took those seriously either. I can remember the 12 grade English one in particular in which the students actually talked during the exam. This was because over the course of the class, not enough was learned to even attempt to take the AP exam. I was considered one of the smart ones and hoped to remain one while in college. However, when I enterd, I realized that I had such a strong disadvantage in my classes because they all had previous learned knowledge from their high schools and most of these things were comepletely new to me. The teachers are good but the classes are dumbed down.

Since Dr. Cook became principal at the school things have turned 180 degrees. The inside looks better, the outside ground look better. They actually fixed the name of school on the building since she took over. Dr. Cooks attends the sports activities and when i can't seem to get something done as a parent, Dr. Cook has never hestitated to help me and that means a lot to me. She is a woman of action and she believes in the students and not just those of her own race but all of them. It's time thoguh for a new high school, I know parents who attended Eastern. It's pretty rundown and old.

My stay at eastern was, for the most part, a fun and eventful one. Near the end, however, (and actually after graduation) my opinion of the school in general diminished greatly. Only upon entering college did i realize how much of a joke most of the ap department at eastern was. I can only think of one instance in particular in the past 2 years where someone made a 4 on any exam, and 3's were almost just as hard to come by. It's not only the incompetent teachers put in charge of a class they have no idea how to teach, it's also the block scheduling. While there seems to be no getting away from block scheduling, you shouldn't have to worry whether your teacher is competent or not. I like eastern as a memory, but only as a memory. Truthfully yours, lospaul@email.Unc.Edu email me for the true story.

I attended EGHS for two of my four years in high school. It was a great experience. The teachers are there for the kids and really try their best to accomidate to every student's situation. The programs at the school are really good as well. -Wendy Irwin

Eastern is a great school to put your kids in. The teachers and staff work and do what they can to make sure your child is taken care of and learning.The students there can come to school and not worry about anything but learning. the staff does the best they can with keeping what goes on outside the 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.
