Posted December 5, 2004

In April of this year our family moved to Lincoln County from another county. Having a hearing impaired five year daughter was already a difficult challenge in her previous school (which wasn't capable, nor acted like they cared to be) and I'll admit that I didn't look forward to having to go through that experience again. When I registered Sarah for Kindergarten, I was absolutely dumb-founded at the expertise that this school possessed. I quickly discovered that Sarah wasn't the only child with disabilities there and they had recently acquired one of the most excellent & professional women I've ever met, Mrs. Becky Taylor, who jumped right in and handled everything! Sarah has made so much progress since starting. She has made many friends among many of the grades as well as the staff. Sarah's learning so much, thanks to the wonderful educators there. This IS the best school around!

I am so pleased with the quality of Iron Station Elementary School. The teachers help the kids learn and grow. My daughter was evaluated for ADD and when it was confirmed the teachers gave her the extra help and understanding she needed. The teachers help keep in touch with the family about how the child and classroom are doing.Any concerns are brought to the family's attention in a polite way. Even the door is set up for the kids-somewhat lower than normal..lol

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.
