Dana school is awesome. The principal and teachers are very involved with all the students and really truly care about each student. I am proud that my son goes to this school.

I have a 7yr. old daughter that goes to Dana. The new school is a wonderful place to learn and the teachers take great pride in teaching our kids and giving helpful hints to parents in keeping the positive attitude at home to expand our childrens horizons as youngster to teenagers and beyond.

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.
