Morgan Elementary school is an excellent school. This school provides a safe and fun atmosphere for children to learn. There are no "favorites" in this school and ALL children are treated equally. Every single person on staff is friendly and they all go above and beyond to make the students as well as the parents feel welcome. Morgan Elementary is the best!!!

Morgan Elementary is a small school with great staff. Morgan excels in academics and every child is made to feel like they are special. The academic programs are strong as Morgan strives to provide the best education a child can have. Parent involvement is truly overwhelming. PTA is also another strong aspect of this 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.
