Posted November 27, 2004

Since this is my third year at this school,I have been able to look at the school from many aspects. I for one enjoy this school. However I know most of us do not enjoy the uniforms as much as our parents do, at least we don't have to pick out our clothes in the morning. Overall this school and all of its staff are very hardworking! I would definently reccomend this middle school to anyone and everyone. It is worth wearing uniforms to get a higher more respective education. I feel privalaged to attend such an excellent school!

Both my children go to New Bridge and I love it, from the uniforms to the education level. The kids are enjoying going there also.

I am a former student of Newbridge and it is without a doubt the best school I have ever attended. All the students can tell that the teachers want to see them do well and succeed in life. I Recommend this School to every child that is eager to learn and is willing to make new friends.

This is a public school in which students are chosen from the entire county by a lottery style student enrollment. It concentrates on Math and Science. The learning environment is excellent.

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.
