This school is ok i have been to better but i wished that AIG could meet on another day because cant stand meeting on my dance days


Posted October 24, 2010

The new changes this year are horrible I'm a 8th grader that is being treated like a second grader. The way I see it I go to school, get good grades, put up with the stupid rules since it is my last year here and get out ASAP. Other than going to school to see my friends I can't stand and almost hate this school.

Wellcome is a wonderful school and a hodgepodge of students, highlighted by a diverse and multicultural faculty and staff! I think that it is typical of any middle school as well as M.S. behaviors, etc. Overall, a great place to attend school and work!

Administration is not supportive of teachers. Administration and teachers don't work always together. There are clicks among grade and elective teachers. Everyone should try to work together. Morale level is low. The Principal does not appear to care but blames the teachers instead of encouraging the teachers. The Principal is prior military and tries to run the teachers like military members instead of civilians. Does not listen to teachers but blames for students behaviors instead of holding the student responsible for thier own behavior.

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.
