This school is great, I'm not really sure why it has negative reviews but honestly the teachers are caring and they invite parents to events so there are some parent involvement.

This school has a lot of potential, but they need to involve the parents and the community more often when making decisions concerning our children.

I'm very displeased with the school as a whole. The leadership definitely isn't the best, but a school starts with the HEAD....... The principal is very slack and seems to be too timid to take matters into her own hands. Teachers are allowed to make racist remarks without fear , because they know nothing will be done. Their PTA meetings are a joke, nothing ever seems to be planned at all!!!!! Guilford County really needs to disband the school all together. I've had nothing but problems from the beginning and I will definitely be transferring my child out of this unorganized raggady school!

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.
