I have two sons currently at Hampton, one in the second grade and one in Pre-K. Since my oldest has been at Hampton there have been three different principal and I must say this year with the new principal Mr. Jarmon I have seen some major changes. I think the one thing that stands out the most for me is the way he motivates the children. He makes them want to learn, he makes them feel good about themselves. I have seen him go into my son's classroom and read the children a story in four years my oldest has been there I never heard of one of his principals coming into the class reading and discussing with the children what going on with them.

Hampton school has gone through some major changes. They went from magnet to year-round now next year they will be back to regular school. I have had five children to go through Hampton. One thing I can say has been consistent through the system changes is the teacher's standards. I've seen 4 different principals come and go. Dr. Routh, Dr. D.Jones, Ms. Alexander to the present Ms. Dorko. all of these principal had the challenge of selecting talented teachers. They met the challenge with success. Hampton has remained an exemplary school. As a parent I know teachers can't educate our children alone. It takes everone to help in educating our children the parent, teacher and community leaders. 'It takes a village to raise a child'. Hampton understands this and have done their part. My childrens' excellent grades and confidence can be attributed to the dedicated teachers of Hampton.

My sons' teachers are both open to my input and very receptive to my involvment in their school and classroom. The principal is also very involved in the students progress and in welcoming parents to the school. I feel they are both receiving an excellent education.

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.
