I went to this school all 4 years of my high school experience. I just graduated this past June 2007. it prepared me alot more than other schools did with my friends. The Best School to send your Children.

EWHS is a great place for kids. Students can find a place to belong here. The staff is great and professional. My daughter came from a small, private school to EWHS. She was placed in interesting classes and found a place in sports and other extracurricular activities. I believe the staff supports the students and encourages them to do their best. The administration was often not visible but security and safe environment seemed under control. I believe the school offers something for everyone. We have since moved and my daughter is far ahead of her peers academically. This is in part due to EWHS.

This school is so run down and in bad physical shape. The crime is way too high also. The school does have AP classes available but it does not out weigh the bad.

I'm currently a Junior at EWHS, I will graduate from EWHS in 2006. EWHS is the BEST school that I have ever been to. And it's so easy to make friends; people you've never seen on campus before will strike up a conversation with you. It's the most diverse school in Wayne County and the top ranked one, too. The activities here are ENDLESS. Everything from football to golf. Not to mention that Eastern Wayne has some of the most gifted students in this region. If you want your child to go to a High School that is diverse, has plenty of extracurricular activities, and that has excellent academic programs...then you NEED to send him or her to Eastern Wayne High School in Goldsboro, NC!

My child has been to many schools before, being a military kid, but I must say this is one of the best. The resources available are great. They offer many courses and extracurricular activities. They have great teachers and they are good about parental contact. My daughter loved this school and she received a top education at this school! Now that we live in Atlanta, she's #4 in her class of 360. I think this school definitely gave her an edge.

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.
