Dudley high school is one of the top Historical black high schools in the nation . It has some very high prestigious alumni' s like CEO of BET television . Joey Cheek Olympic gold medallist in speed skating....and a NFL Hall of famer in Charlie Saunders. ..its technical school of science, math,and technology is gearing some.great leaders for the future. Being a graduate myself, I encourage parents to give Dudley a chance.....not only that its becoming one of America's top college sports recruits targets making guilford county #1 in the state and becoming one of the nationals best areas to recruit from across the nation.

It taught me to be proud of myself and my accomplishment as a young Black American and the contribution my race has made to this country.

I believe the students at this school have to work harder to achieve what others in schools in the same district are given. A student who graduates from Dudley with any kind of good grades has worked hard to over-come adversary and deserves praise, because they take the same EOC (end of course) test that students at high performing schools did. Is it the teachers/parents/students/schools fault that it is overcrowed? No, it's the school system who determines where a student goes to school.


Posted August 23, 2007

The school is overcrowded and the attitude of some of the teachers are non professional. They spend most of the time disciplining students than teaching. Which constitutes low moral for teachers and difficulty for the students that want to learn.

Excellent Leadership and the quality of teaching. I enjoy how the teachers and parents get involved. I know my child is safe when they go to school.

Test scores low, attitudes of teachers poor. Overall student population reflects poor attitudes.

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.
