The principal, faculty & staff are wonderful at Rosewood Middle School. It is a safe environment, academics are top priority! As the parent of an autistic child it has been a blessed experince to deal with people who WANT the same educational goals met as we the parents - goals are set & met! Highly recommend Rosewood Middle & Elementary schools. Outstanding school, school spirit, teachers, academics, non-academic activities & positively safe and friendly environment! Mary Donahue

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.
