Worst school ever. The majority of the teachers/faculty all act like they are in some sort of hierarchy. Staff treats students like toddlers but expects them to be adults. In my four years of high school here 2 out of 32 teachers (4 classes per semester) actually wanted to teach and enjoyed it. All the others hated their job and hated the students. I was constantly harassed over absences in which they wanted to suspend me? Because that makes sense. Ended up dropping out my senior year and enrolling in the community college to get my High school diploma (NOT GED!). Ended up blowing through that with straight A's and received my diploma 6 months before the school year was up. Overall this school is just horrible. If they could start worrying about teaching their students and not about which administrators have the most power than they would be fine.

Great school. Wonderful athletics, honors courses are extremely well taught. Above and below average students receive all the attention they could possibly need. The HPAC is the pride and joy of this school, they take wonderful care and host many great local shows.

Havelock High School is an excellent school with an exceptional faculty and staff. My daughter recently graduated from Havelock High School with all honors. We are very proud of her efforts there and the staff and faculty were wonderful to work with. The Performing Arts Center is a building of pride on the campus. Havelock High School is proof positive that if your child is willing to work hard, he/she will be rewarded for his/her efforts. KUDOS HHS!

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.
