I am the author of the 2007 review. I have had children at Morehead since then and we have loved the school the entire time. There have been some challenges in that we have had 3 principals and an interim in the years I have been there. But the quality of education and dedication of the majority of the teachers has remained excellent. The parents came through in the times of challenge and supported the teachers and staff unbelievably. I only have 3 more years before my youngest leaves for middle school and it will be a very hard separation for me.

We love this school! I have two kids in this school and we love it! The school's values go along with what I expect my kids to value in life. Very friendly environment! I love the Art's academy (Third grade and up - additional art classes after school (optional)) And PTA is great! Thank you, teachers and parents for great work!

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.
